Cloning and sequencing of NS5 partial gene from HGV China isolate
Abstract: A partial gene of HGV was cloned and sequenced from the serum of a blood donor in Hebei Province of China. The partial sequence from the nostructural region gene showed 90. 5% nucleotide identity and 95 % amino acid identity over the corresponding region of isolates in America. One hundred and fifteen samples collected in Jangshu and Hebei Provinces were detected for HGV RNA by RT-PCR. The HGV RNA positive rate is 3.47%.
