  • RelevanceHCV (Hepatitis C Virus) viral core protein forms the internal viral coat that encapsidates the genomic RNA and is enveloped in a host cell derived lipid membrane. The hepatitis C virus (HCV) core protein represents the first 177 amino acids of the viral precursor polyprotein and is cotranslationally inserted into the membrane of the endoplasmic reticulum. The N terminus of the core protein is involved in transcriptional repression. HCV core protein is among the most conserved proteins in HCV and is known to induce sensitization of cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL). Therefore, it is a prime candidate for a component of a potential HCV vaccine.
  • Cellular localizationHost endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Single-pass membrane protein. Host mitochondrion membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein. Host lipid droplet. Host cytoplasm. Host nucleus. Secreted
