ELISA: Use at an assay dependent dilution. WB: Use at a concentration of 1 μg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 60 kDa. GTX18663 will allow visualization of 0.1 ug/lane of synthetic NS-3 protein. Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Specific for synthetic NS-3 Protein (amino acids 1378-1458). No cross reaction with HCV capsid region and other non-structural regions.
0.01M PBS pH7.0
Store as concentrated solution. Centrifuge briefly prior to opening vial. For short-term storage (1-2 weeks), store at 4ºC. For long-term storage, aliquot and store at -20ºC or below. Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.

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 and several non-structural proteins necessary for viral replication. Several different genotypes of HCV with slightly different genomic sequences have since been identified that correlate with differences in response to treatment with interferon alpha.
