ATW0004 Aptamer to Viral Protein Dengue Type 2 NS1
Dengue virus is the cause of dengue fever. It is a mosquito-borne single positive-stranded RNA virus. There are four antigenically related, but distinct, dengue virus serotypes (DEN-1, DEN-2, DEN-3 and DEN-4). DEN-2 nonstructural protein-1 (NS1) is a secreted glycoprotein that is absent from viral particles but accumulates in the supernatant and on the plasma membrane of cells during infection.
This aptamer was selected by scientists at Base Pair Biotechnologies using proprietary methods, a provided target of non-reported origin and 1X PBS pH 7.4.
