4General information
Note

Nonstructural protein 3 (NS3) is a viral nonstructural protein that is 70 kDa cleavage product of the hepatitis C virus polyprotein. It acts as a serine protease.


HCV infection and the detection of specific antibodies varies from patient to patient. With current assays, seroconversion occurs on an average at 6-8 weeks after the onset of infection.


Conserved antigens from the HCV NS3 regions are used in these tests to detect anti-HCV antibodies.


Detect anti-HCV antibody are generally recommended for screening the HCV infections.
