MA1-21376 detects HCV NS3.
MA1-21376 has been successfully used in ELISA, Immunohistochemistry and Western blot procedures.
The MA1-21376 immunogen is a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues 1378-1458, encoding the NS-3 region of Chinese HCV strains.
HCV is a positive, single-stranded RNA virus in the Flaviviridae family. The genome is approximately 10,000 nucleotides and encodes a single polyprotein of about 3,000 amino acids. The polyprotein is processed by host cell and viral proteases into three major structural proteins and several non-structural protein necessary for viral replication. Several different genotypes of HCV with slightly different genomic sequences have since been identified that correlate with differences in response to treatment with interferon alpha.
