Herpes Simplex Virus VP22 is a 38 kD portion of the Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1 protein.  The protein is especially useful because it is able to translocate between cultured cells.  This ability is the main reason for the higher efficiency and faster rate at which the Voyager technology works.  The Herpes Simplex Virus Type 1 is most commonly recognized as facial infections.  The virus resides in a resting state in the nerves that run directly to the facial skin around the mouth of an infected person.
