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 chimeric HCV polyprotein (552 aa, around 60 kDa). The mAb works on blots transferred from both reducing and non-reducing PAGE gel. The mAb recognizes in-vitro translated HCV core protein (around 20 kDa) when used at concentration of 1 μg/mL.

Immunofluorescent analysis: The mAb recognizes HCV core in HCV core expressing plasmid transfected cells at 1:200 dilution.

* The dilutions indicate recommended starting dilutions and the optimal dilutions or concentrations should be determined by the scientist.

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.
