Sequences obtained in the 5' non-coding region (5'NCR) of hepatitis C virus (HCV) were obtained from Scottish blood donors and compared with previously published HCV sequences. Phylogenetic analysis revealed the existence of three distinct groups of sequences; two of these corresponded to the recently described HCV types 1 and 2 variants, while viral sequences detected in around a third of the blood donors formed a separate phylogenetic group that probably represents infection with a novel… Expand
Classification of hepatitis C virus into six major genotypes and a series of subtypes by phylogenetic analysis of the NS-5 region.
TLDR
A new nomenclature for HCV variants is proposed in this communication that reflects the two-tiered nature of sequence differences between different viral isolates and describes criteria that would enable new variants to be assigned within the classification as they are discovered. Expand
Derivation of a Rational Nomenclature for Hepatitis C Virus by Phylogenetic Analysis of the NS-5 Region
TLDR
A new nomenclature for HCV variants is proposed in this communication that reflects the two-tiered nature of sequence differences between different viral isolates. Expand
Distinct Subtypes of Hepatitis C Virus Defined by Antibodies Directed to the Putative Core, NS4, and NS5 Region Polypeptides
TLDR
The results indicate that there are serotype-specific epitopes in the core, NS4, and NS5 regions of HCV-1, which can be linked to type-specific genotype HCV variants by a type- specific polymerase chain reaction (PCR) primer study. Expand
Identification of genotypes of hepatitis C virus by sequence comparisons in the core, E1 and NS-5 regions.
TLDR
sequence analysis of variants in the 5' non-coding region (5'NCR) and in the genes encoding the core protein, an envelope protein (E1) and a non-structural protein (NS-5) indicate that subgenomic regions such as E1 and NS-5 contain sufficient phylogenetic information for the identification of each of the 11 or 12 known types and subtypes of HCV.

TLDR
It appears that at least two novel sequence variants exist in HCV in Indonesia, although their prevalence rates may be relatively low. Expand

TLDR
The type 3 variants including a new subtype (3g) to be the major cause of HCV infection in India are demonstrated. Expand

TLDR
The complete nucleotide sequence of the putative envelope 1 (E1) gene in 51 HCV isolates from around the world is determined and it is found that they could be grouped into at least 12 distinct genotypes, with important implications for HCV diagnosis and vaccine development. Expand
Genetic variability of German hepatitis C virus isolates
TLDR
The results indicate that various German isolates are more closely related to Japanese isolates and differ from other European isolates as reported so far. Expand
Evidence of intratypic recombination in natural populations of hepatitis C virus.
TLDR
Three different genomic regions of four HCV strains isolated from Peruvian patients were sequenced in order to investigate the congruence of HCV genotyping for these three genomic regions, revealing that a crossover event had taken place in the NS5B protein. Expand
Sequence variability in the 5' non-coding region of hepatitis C virus: identification of a new virus type and restrictions on sequence diversity.
TLDR
The specific nucleotide substitutions in the 5' NCR that differentiate each of the four HCV types can be detected by restriction enzyme cleavage, providing a rapid and reliable method for virus typing. Expand

Characterization of nucleotide sequences from European hepatitis C virus isolates.
TLDR
Sera from chronically infected patients reacted strongly with the recombinant core protein, but no specific immunoreactivity occurred with the putative envelope protein, indicating that the European isolates may be more closely related to the ptHCV and one Japanese isolate than to the other Japanese isolates. Expand
Nucleotide sequence and mutation rate of the H strain of hepatitis C virus.
TLDR
The results suggest that the mutation rate of the HCV genome is similar to that of other RNA viruses and that genes appear to be evolving at different rates within the virus genome. Expand
Isolation of a complementary DNA fragment of hepatitis C virus in Taiwan revealed significant sequence variations compared with other isolates
TLDR
To clone and characterize hepatitis C virus strains present in Taiwan, RNA was extracted from liver tissue collected from a patient during the acute phase of posttransfusion non‐A, non‐B hepatitis, and the viral genome was demonstrated in the spleen tissue by similar methods, suggesting another possible target for hepatitis C viral infection.

Nucleotide sequence of core and envelope genes of the hepatitis C virus genome derived directly from human healthy carriers.

The complete nucleotide and amino acid sequences of the structural gene of HCV are reported and it is shown that the deduced amino acid sequence was mostly hydrophobic and had 6 possible N. Expand
Typing of hepatitis C virus genomes by restriction fragment length polymorphism.
TLDR
This work identified restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLPs) in reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction products encoding a portion of the NS5 gene in Japanese isolates and suggested that the nucleotide sequences of the K1 and K2 types are different throughout the HCV genome.

Nucleotide sequence of the genomic RNA of hepatitis C virus isolated from a human carrier: comparison with reported isolates for conserved and divergent regions.
TLDR
The complete nucleotide sequence of a hepatitis C virus derived from plasma of a human carrier in Japan was determined and a high degree of similarity in the amino acid sequence of the putative core protein would make antigen probes deduced from it suitable for the serological diagnosis of HCV infection.

The 5'-terminal sequence of the hepatitis C virus genome.
TLDR
The 5'-terminal sequence of the genome of hepatitis C virus was determined for two distinct HCV strains in human and chimpanzee carriers and was considered to possess an uninterrupted open reading frame encoding at least 2886 amino acid residues. Expand
Structure and organization of the hepatitis C virus genome isolated from human carriers.
TLDR
The hydrophobicity profile of the putative polyprotein is similar to those of flaviviruses, but it has limited amino acid homology to polyproteins of flavIViruses and other viruses, indicating that HCV is at most distantly related to flavivIRuses. Expand

The nucleotide sequence of the RNA genome of the human hepatitis C virus has been determined and significant genome diversity is apparent within the putative 5' structural gene region of different HCV isolates, suggesting the presence of closely related but distinct viral genotypes. Expand
