Expression of non-conserved regions of the S genome segments of three hantaviruses: evaluation of the expressed polypeptides for diagnosis of haemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome.


Haemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS) is a serious and often fatal disease caused by viruses in the Hantavirus genus of the family Bunyaviridae. We expressed the entire coding region of the small (S) genome segments of three serologically distinct hantaviruses as soluble proteins in Escherichia coli and evaluated the expressed nucleocapsid proteins… (More)
