Hepatitis E Virus Transmission from Wild Boar Meat
We investigated a case of hepatitis E acquired after persons ate wild boar meat. Genotype 3 hepatitis E virus (HEV) RNA was detected in both patient serum and wild boar meat. These findings providedExpand

Essential Elements of the Capsid Protein for Self-Assembly into Empty Virus-Like Particles of Hepatitis E Virus
ABSTRACT Hepatitis E virus (HEV) is a noncultivable virus that causes acute liver failure in humans. The virus's major capsid protein is encoded by an open reading frame 2 (ORF2) gene. When theExpand

Detection of hepatitis E virus RNA from the bivalve Yamato-Shijimi (Corbicula japonica) in Japan.
To evaluate whether bivalves are contaminated with hepatitis E virus (HEV), samples of a bivalve called Yamato-Shijimi (Corbicula japonica) were examined for HEV by reverse transcription-polymeraseExpand

Characterization of self-assembled virus-like particles of human polyomavirus BK generated by recombinant baculoviruses.
The major structural protein of the human polyomavirus BK (BKV), VP1, was expressed by using recombinant baculoviruses. A large amount of protein with a molecular mass of about 42 kDa was synthesizedExpand

Spatial Configuration of Hepatitis E Virus Antigenic Domain
ABSTRACT Hepatitis E virus (HEV) is a human pathogen that causes acute hepatitis. When an HEV capsid protein containing a 52-amino-acid deletion at the C terminus and a 111-amino-acid deletion at theExpand
