Target

  • Relevance
    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. The polyprotein is processed by host cell and viral proteases into three major structural proteins including NS3, and several non-structural proteins necessary for viral replication. The NS3 part of the polyprotein displays three enzymatic activities: serine protease, NTPase and RNA helicase. The NS3 serine proteinase (NS3P) is a non-structural hepatitis C protein responsible for proteolytic processing of other non-structural proteins; because of this, it is also the most extensively studied protein of the Hepatitis C genome. It is responsible for proteolytic processing of the entire downstream region of the HC polyprotein, catalyzing cleavage at the NS3/NS4a, NS4a/NS4b, NS4b/NS5a, and NS5a/NS5b sites to release the mature NS3, NS4a, NS4b, NS5a, and NS5b proteins.For proper function, NS3 requires NS4a as a cofactor, but, interestingly enough, NS3 also cleaves the NS4a protein. The molecular weight of the monomer NS3P is 70 kDa.

Customer reviews and Q&As

Answer

Thank you for your enquiry. Goat anti HCV NS3, ab21124, is a polyclonal antibody and therefore recognizes multiple epitopes. The immunogen is a recombinant protein representing the full-length NS3 sequence. It is likely that some of the epitopes recognized are within the NS3 protease domain, but we have not specifically tested this. Because we have not tested this, we cannot guarantee this application. I hope this information helps. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need anything further.
