Could anyone tell me which of the following HCV peptides are able to
induce cytokine production in in vitro cultured PBMC from patients with
chronic hepatitis C? Also, does anyone know how long the stimulation
period should be , using cytofluorimetric analysis as the detection
1) core, aa. 19-25
2) core, aa. 107-174
3) E2, aa.484-499
4) NS4, aa. 1658-1863.
Thank you in advance
