Dengue Virus Type 2 NS1 Antigen
Dengue virus is common mosquito-borne infection and a major cause of morbidity in tropical and subtropical regions. There is currently no vaccine to prevent, or effective anti-viral drugs to treat, dengue virus infection. In many cases infection is assymptomatic and the majority of individuals who get ill only suffer the mild, non-specific febrile symptoms characteristic of dengue fever (DF). Only a minority of infections result in severe disease, manifesting as dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) or dengue shock syndrome (DSS). Dengue virus infection gives lifelong immunity to the serotype in question but subsequent infection with another serotype may increase the likelihood of severe disease.
The NS1 glycoprotein is essential for viral replication and viability, and since this protein is secreted into the bloodstream, tests have been developed to diagnose DENV infections using NS1, including antigen-capture ELISA, lateral flow antigen detection, and the measurement of NS1-specific IgM and IgG responses (Guzman, M.G. et al. 2010).
Recombinant DENV2 NS1 antigen is presented in its native folded state complete with post-translational modifications, delivering optimal antigenicity and making it suitable for use in vaccine research and serology-based assays.
