Evidence for a new hepatitis C virus antigen encoded in an overlapping reading frame.

Abstract

Many viruses have overlapping genes and/or regions in which a nucleic acid signal is embedded in a coding sequence. To search for dual-use regions in the hepatitis C virus (HCV), we developed a facile computer-based sequence analysis method to map dual-use regions in coding sequences. Eight diverse full-length HCV RNA and polyprotein sequences were aligned… (More)
