The MA1-7342 antibody reacts with Hepatitis C virus NS5b. This antibody detects genotype 1a and 1b, but not 2a.
MA1-7342 has been successfully used in ELISA, Immunofluorescence and Western blot applications.
The MA1-7342 antibody was raised against NS5b protein.
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.
