Green Monkey

Chlorocebus sabaeus

Welcome to the Green Monkey Portal within RGD. This portal contains links to data related to the Green Monkey, Chlorocebus sabaeus,sometimes referred to as African Green Monkey (AGM) or Vervet, and to tools that Green Monkey researchers can use to find and analyze that data. Please feel free to contact us with suggestions for additional data or tools that would help advance your research.

“The green monkey or vervet (Chlorocebus sabaeus) is native to West Africa and was introduced to the Caribbean islands in the 1600s. The term “vervet” is often applied to any of the species in the genus Chlorocebus as they were formerly treated as subspecies of the vervet (Chlorocebus aethiops). For example, the green monkey was formerly classified as Chlorocebus aethiops sabaeus. Green monkeys, and vervets in general, are commonly used in biomedical research as models for the study of neurodegeneration, diabetes and other metabolic syndromes, HIV transmission, and AIDS. Green monkeys are a natural host of the simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) but, when infected, do not develop AIDS-like symptoms despite having a high viral load. The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) likely evolved from SIV.”
