The aim of this study was to evaluate the immunogenicity of NS5A protein of human hepatitis C virus (HCV) when delivered as naked DNA (NS5A DNA), or recombinant protein (rNS5A). DBA/2J mice received NS5A DNA, rNS5A, or NS5A DNA/rNS5A in different prime-boost combinations with a peptidoglycan Immunomax((R)). The weakest response was induced after rNS5A prime(More)
The oncogenic potential of hepatitis C virus (HCV) core protein has been demonstrated, but the precise mechanism of cell transformation triggered by HCV core is still unclear. This study shows that constitutive expression of HCV core protein (core) in NIH 3T3 murine fibroblasts triggers malignant transformation. At the preneoplastic stage, clones that(More)
