I have made and packaged a viral plasmid into a packaging cell line and now I am trying to name the viral particles that are made from it. What do I refer to it as? Like, INSERT NAME + ENVELOPE KIND + CELL RECEPTOR TARGET+ VIRUS KIND + PROMOTER, or what?

The construct I used: pMXs-hNANOG, it is a retroviral plasmid
The packaging cell line: PT67

The promoter for the plasmid is the viral LTR, the packaging cell line provides envelope 10A1, the receptors are GAVL (Pit1) and RAM1 (Pit2).

So, what would the viral particles be named?
