Hepatitis C virus (HCV) is a small (55-65 nm in size), enveloped, positive sense single-stranded RNA virus in the family Flaviviridae and the principal cause of parenteral non-A, non-B hepatitis. The virus genome consists of a single open reading frame of approximately 9.4 kb which encodes a single polyprotein of about 3,010 amino acids (1, 2, 3). The polyprotein is processed by host cell and viral proteases into four structural proteins (core, envelope1 and 2, and p7) and six non-structural proteins (NS2, 3, 4a, 4b, 5a, and 5b) necessary for viral replication. HCV core protein (191 aa) is not only a component of nucleocapsid but also has multiple functions and is thought to be a pathogenic factor for hepatitis. It also participates in some cellular processes, including transcriptional regulation and cellular transduction. HCV core antigen is used as diagnostic marker for HCV infection.
