Recombinant HPV6 antigen is a 55.6kDa protein covering the full length of HPV6 major capsid, its N-terminus is fused with a GST tag, having a total Mw of 81.6kDa. The HPV6 was Purified by proprietary chromatographic technique.
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.
