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 protein is fused with beta-galactosidase at the N-Terminus and contains the HEV immunodominant ORF3 92-123 a.a.
HEV ORF3 protein was purified by proprietary chromatographic technique.
Greater than 95.0% as determined by Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
20mM Tris-HCl, pH-8, 10mM B-ME and 8M urea.
HEV ORF3 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.
