Hepatitis E virus (HEV), the major etiologic agent of enterically transmitted non-A, non-B hepatitis worldwide, is a spherical, non-enveloped, single stranded RNA virus that is approximately 32 to 34 nm in diameter. HEV belongs to a genus of HEV-like viruses (unassigned genus). HEV has a single-stranded polyadenylated RNA genome of approximately 8 kb. Based on its physicochemical properties it is presumed to be a calici-like virus.
The e.coli derived HEV Mosaic protein contains 12 HEV immunodominant regions from ORF2 and ORF3 having a molecular mass of 38.5 kDa.
GS-4B Sepharose-Affinity Purification.
HEV Mosaic protein is >95% pure as determined by 10% PAGE (coomassie staining).
25mM Tris pH 8.0, 1mM EDTA, 0.5M urea and 50% glycerol.
HEV Mosaic protein although stable at 4°C for 1 week, should be stored below -18°C.
Please prevent freeze thaw cycles.
Immunoreactive with sera HEV-infected individuals.
