Disease relevance of HpVgp5


High impact information on HpVgp5

  • The sequence information needed for assigning genotypes can be captured by VP1, VP2, VP3, or large T-gene sequencing [4].
  • VP2 and VP3, but not VP1, caused the permeabilization of bacterial membranes [5].
  • These constructs were transfected into COS-7 cells, and the intracellular localization of the VP2 protein was determined by indirect immunofluorescence [6].
  • To avoid false positive results, due to contamination with commonly used SV40 T-antigen plasmids, a conserved region of the VP2 gene was targeted [7].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of HpVgp5

  • The major VP-2 protein could be resolved in the form of a consistent pattern of three abundant (a to c), two intermediate (d and e), and one meager (f) neutral isoelectric focusing species or subtypes [8].
