ZIKV Capsid protein cDNA Clones Research Reagents

Zika virus (ZIKV) is distinct from other flaviviruses in many aspects, for example, causing transplacental infection, fetal abnormalities and vector-independent transmission through body fluids in humans. ZIKV capsid protein possesses broad binding capability to different nucleotide types, including single-stranded and double-stranded RNAs or DNAs. The capsid (C) protein is a multifunctional protein, since it binds to viral RNA in the process of nucleocapsid assembly and plays important roles in virus infection processes by interacting with cellular proteins, modulating cellular metabolism, apoptosis and immune response.
