This antibody is reactive against Hepatitis G Virus / Hepatitis GBV-C in Human samples.
Hepatitis G virus is from a group of viruses called GB viruses (GB virus A, GB virus B and GB virus C) and is also designated as GB virus C (GBV C). HGV is a positive stranded RNA virus, with a genome of 10 KB and appears, on the basis of genome length and organisation, to be a member of the Flaviviridae and distinct from the hepatitis C virus (HCV). HGV infection appears to be transmitted following receipt of blood from HGV RNA positive donors, however, these patients have only moderate liver enzyme elevations and do not develop chronic liver disease.
