Latest Hepatitis C virus Stories
A hepatitis C vaccine is one step closer thanks to the efforts of scientists at The Scripps Research Institute, who have managed to discover unexpected structural features of a protein used by the virus to infect liver cells.

Understanding how viral proteins are produced can provide important clues on how we might interfere with the process.
Hepatitis E virus is an infective organism. The viral particles are 27 to 34 nanometers in diameter. They are non-enveloped and contain a single-strand of positive-sense RNA which is approximately 7300 bases in length. The virus was first visualized in 1983 and molecularly cloned in 1990. Previously it was classified in the family Caliciviridae. Its genome more closely resembles the rubella virus and is now classified as the only member of the genus Hepevirus which has not yet been...
Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is an enveloped, positive-sense single-stranded RNA virus of the family Flaviviridae. It consists of a core of genetic material surrounded by an icosahedra protective shell of protein. The genome consists of a single open reading frame that is 9600 nucleotide bases long. HCV replication takes several steps. It primarily replicates in the hepatocytes of the liver. It can also reproduce in peripheral blood mononuclear cells. There is a wide variety of genotypes and...
