Mosaic hepatitis B virus core particles presenting the complete preS sequence of the viral envelope on their surface.

Abstract

The sequence of the preS domain of the hepatitis B virus (HBV, genotype D) envelope was inserted into the major immunodominant region (MIR) of the C-terminally truncated HBV core (HBc) protein. In Escherichia coli, the HBc-preS fusion protein was partially soluble and did not produce particles. Co-expression of the wild-type HBc as a helper protein along… (More)
