Zika virus envelope (E protein) comprising amino acids 291-690.
Biological Significance
Zika virus spreads to people primarily through the bite of an infected Aedes species mosquito, but it can also be sexually transmitted. Zika virus was first discovered in 1947 and is named after the Zika Forest in Uganda. In 1952, the first human cases of Zika were detected. Zika virus has become a highly researched disease due to increase in incidences from 2007 to 2016, when the virus spread eastward, across the Pacific Ocean to the Americas. In 2015–16 Zika virus epidemic reached pandemic levels. The Zika envelope (E) protein composes the majority of the virion surface and it is involved with replication, such as host cell binding and membrane fusion.
Implications in Disease
The symptoms of Zika infection vary from non-existant to visible rash, fever, headaches and conjunctivitis. It is usually non life threatening, but has been associated to microcephaly in unborn fetuses when passed by an infected pregnant mother.
Sequence Information
The sequence of the envelope protein is derived from the African strain (all strains share very high identity in this region).
Preparation and Storage
Upon receipt store at or below -20 degree C. Avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles.
Shipping: Dry Ice.
Other Notes
Small volumes of Zika virus envelope recombinant protein vial(s) may occasionally become entrapped in the seal of the product vial during shipment and storage. If necessary, briefly centrifuge the vial on a tabletop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid in the container`s cap. Certain products may require to ship with dry ice and additional dry ice fee may apply.
