Tested Reactivity HCV
Tested Application ELISA, ICC/IF, WB
Specificity No cross reaction with recombinant or synthetic HCV non-structural proteins (NS-3 and NS-4).
Host Mouse
Clonality Monoclonal
Clone B2
Isotype IgG1,k
Target Name Hepatitis C virus core antigen

Application Instructions

Application Note ELISA: The mAb reacts with human hepatitis C virus core protein, and doesn’t react with HCV non-structure protein.

Western Blot: The mAb, when used at concentration of 0.1-0.5μg/mL, will allow visualization of 0.1 μg/lane of recombinant core protein C + envelope protein M, 0.5μg /lane synthetic core protein C, and 0.1μg /lane recombinant 60kDa chimeric HCV polyprotein. The mAb works on blots transferred from both reducing and non-reducing PAGE gel. The mAb recognizes in-vitro translated HCV core protein.

GeneID: 951475 HCV HCVgp1

Background Hepatitis C virus (HCV) causes chronic hepatitis and liver cirrhosis in human through blood and body fluid transmission. HCV has a positive sense single RNA genome enclosed in the nucleocapsid made of Core Protein (Capsid Protein). The nucleocapsid is covered by an envelope made of lipoproteins (E1 and E2). The 9.6 kb HCV genome has a single open-reading frame, which is to be translated into a single polyprotein. HCV viral proteins are produced after processing the polyprotein. Genes for core protein and envelop proteins are located adjacently at the 5’-end of HCV genome, followed by genes for non-structural proteins including NS2, NS3, NS4A, NS4B, NS5, NS5A and NS5B.
