  • RelevanceNS4 A/B are two of the seven nonstructural (NS) proteins making up the HCV polyprotein. The NS proteins recruit the viral genome into an RNA replication complex, which is associated with rearranged cytoplasmic membranes. NS4A acts as a cofactor with the NS3 serine protease and stabilizes its folding. The NS3-NS4A complex is essential for the activation of the latter and allows membrane anchorage of NS3. HCV is a positive, single-stranded RNA virus in the Flaviviridae family. The genome is approximately 10,000 nucleotides and encodes a single polyprotein of about 3,000 amino acids. HCV is responsible for a large proportion of worldwide chronic viral hepatitides. Most of these infections develop into chronic hepatitis, which often progresses to liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. At present, (unlike hepatitis A and B), there is no vaccine to prevent hepatitis C infection. The hepatitis C virus (HCV) nonstructural protein 4B (NS4B) is a relatively hydrophobic 27-kDa protein. The 4A protein has a molecular weight of 6 kDa.
  • Cellular localizationEndoplasmic reticulum; multi-pass membrane protein.

The ELISA protocol is below.
If antigen is diluted at least 1 to 10 the 8M Urea will not be a problem.

ELISA protocol

1. Dilute HCV antigen to 0.1 mg/25 ml (4.0 mg/ml) in coating buffer (0.01M Na2CO3; 0.01M Na3EDTA...

The lab let me know that they used a standard ELISA protocol with 50 microgram per well as a starting concentration with serial dilutions. The urea did not interfere.

Thank you for contacting us. In theory the protein ab49029 should react with antibidy ab124526, since the protein is full length Hepatitis C Virus NS4 protein. However, this has not been tested and there is a possibility the tag could prevent the antib...
