Putative hepatitis C virus core sequence was amplified from a serum sample positive for anti-C-100-3 and expressed inEscherichia coli. Approximately 62 kDa fusion protein with maltose binding protein containing 20 kDa hepatitis C core protein was obtained. The antibody to this protein was detected in 53 of 54 (98%) sera from hepatitis C virus ribonucleic… CONTINUE READING
