Protein Name & Synonyms:
Rubella capsid Protein
IgG concentration 1.0mg/ml
This product recognizes the capsid protein of the Rubella virus. Rubella virus is a human pathogen that causes Rubella (also known as German measles). Rubella is a mild disease characterised by a low-grade fever and possibly a rash. Infection of a woman during the first trimester of pregnancy is far more serious and can lead to a range of birth defects commonly known as congenital rubella syndrome (CRS).
The capsid protein is a non-glycosylated, phosphorylated, disulfide-linked homodimer of 33-38kDa. The protein contains clusters of proline and arginine residues, thought to be involved in binding to the viral RNA to form viral nucleocapsids.
