The e.coli derived HEV Mosaic-S protein contains 4 HEV immunodominant regions from the ORF2 and ORF3 having a total molecular mass of 33 kDa. The 4 HEV regions is a part of the 12 HEV regions. HEVMosaic-S comprises of epitope N- terminus of ORF2 and epitope of approximately 500
Hepatitis E virus (HEV), the major etiologic agent of enterically transmitted non-A, non-B hepatitis worldwide, is a spherical, non-enveloped, single stranded RNA virus that is approximately 32 to 34 nm in diameter. HEV belongs to a genus of HEV-like viruses (unassigned genus). HEV has a single-stranded polyadenylated RNA genome of approximately 8 kb. Based on its physicochemical properties it is presumed to be a calici-like virus.
