We can detect acute dengue infections in acute phase sera by means of virus isolation or PCR (8-10) or by detection of circulating dengue nonstructural protein 1 (NS1) (4) (11) using an antigen-detection ELISA (12-14); but commercially available methods (15, 16) are slow, cumbersome, and costly.
The alphavirus-specific primer set (AL-2: 5'-AAG CTY CGC GTC CTT TAC CAA AG-3' and AL-3: 5'-GTG GTG TCA AAC CCT ATC CA-3') targeted a consensus region of the nonstructural protein 1 (nspl) genes to detect all alphaviruses.
Live Influenza Virus Vaccines with Altered Nonstructural Protein 1 Genes The ability to site specifically engineering changes in the influenza virus genome also allows us to consider novel vaccine approaches.
