This antibody reacts with the E1 (genotype 1a) envelope protein of Hepatitis C virus.
Purity is >90%. This product was purified using a proprietary method resulting in an Ig fraction.
Hepatitis C Virus 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. Hepatitis C E1 is a virus envelope glycoprotein which forms a heterodimer with the E2 protein.
