To elucidate the relationship between the frequency of core mutations and precore mutation of hepatitis B virus (HBV) in Japanese HBV carriers, we investigated the nucleotide sequence of the precore/core region of HBV in 26 Japanese HBV carriers [15 who were HBe antigen-negative (HBeAg−) and 11 who were HBeAg-positive (HBeAg+)]. The number of amino acid(More)
