Figure 1. IP was carried out with NS5B specific mAb 7F12 using the lysates of Huh7 cells harboring selectable subgenomic HCV RNA replicon (upper panel) or plain Huh7 cells (lower panel). NS5B polyclonal antibodies (a-NS5B) and a-Bcl2 mAb, directed against cellular protein, were used as positive and negative controls respectively. Asterisk indicates immunoglobulin heavy chain; protein blots were probed with NS5B specific mAb 10D6.

Non-structural protein 5B (NS5B) represents the RNA-dependent RNA polymerase (RdRp) of Hepatitis C Virus, which is a small positive strand RNA virus in the family Flaviviridae. HCV is a major causative agent of acute and chronic hepatitis, hepatocellular carcinoma and liver cirrhosis. The single subunit RNA-dependent RNA polymerase is absolutely essential for the viral replication.
