ZIKA VIRUS NS1 ANTIGEN

All flavivirus NS1 genes share a high degree of homology, encoding a 352-amino-acid polypeptide that has a molecular weight of 46-55 kDa, depending on its glycosylation status. Zia virus NS1 protein is secreted at high levels by infected cells as hexameric lipoparticle and can serve as an important biomarker for early diagnosis of disease.
