      The hepatitis C virus (HCV) core protein represents the first 191 amino acids of the viral precursor polyprotein and is cotranslationally inserted into the membrane of the endoplasmic reticulum. Hepatitis C virus (HCV) core is a viral structural protein; it also participates in some cellular processes, including transcriptional regulation. However the mechanisms of core-mediated transcriptional regulation remain poorly understood. Hepatitis C virus (HCV) core protein is thought to contribute to HCV pathogenesis through its interaction with various signal transduction pathways. In addition, HCV core antigen is a recently developed marker of hepatitis C infection. The HCV core protein has been previously shown to circulate in the bloodstream of HCV-infected patients and inhibit host immunity through an interaction with gC1qR. Hepatitis C Virus 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. The polyprotein is processed by host cell and viral proteases into three major structural proteins and several non structural proteins necessary for viral replication. Hepatitis C virus (HCV) causes most cases of non-A, non-B hepatitis and results in most HCV infected people developing chronic infections, liver cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. T cell responses, including interferon-gamma production are severely suppressed in chronic HCV patients.

      Thank you for your enquiry. I apologize, but it seems there was an error on the ab2586 datasheet. The antibody was tested in Western blot and found unsuitable. I have updated the datasheet with this information to avoid future confusion. I hope this information helps. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need anything further.

      Thank you for your reply. Yes, core was IPed out of cells expressing core protein. I apologize that the recipe was not included in the last email. Please find the recipe below: NP-40 Cell Lysis Buffer - Immunoprecipitation Buffer Recipe * 50 mM Tris-HCl Final Concentration * 150 mM NaCl Final Concentration * Add 1% NP-40 * Adjust to pH 8.0 I hope this information helps. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need anything further.
