The recombinant HPV-18 (a 56kDa antigen) comprised from E. coli and fused to a GST-tag.
Human papillomaviruses (HPVs) are a group family with more than 150 related viruses. HP 6 and 11 considered as low-risk HPVs can be sexually transmitted, causing warts to emerge on or around the genitals or anus, known as condylomata acuminate. HPV-6 major/large capsid antigen is used in clinical diagnosis to test the specific antibody to this virus induced by the virus infection, the positive reaction of this antibody is deemed as a marker for present and past infection. Furthermore, HPV-6 large capsid is used as a potential candidate for vaccine development.
