The Core of Hepatitis C Virus Pathogenesis

C Cheng Kao et al. Curr Opin Virol. .

Abstract

Capsid proteins form protective shells around viral genomes and mediate viral entry. However, many capsid proteins have additional and important roles for virus infection and in modulating cellular response to infection, with important consequences on pathogenesis. Infection by the Hepatitis C virus (HCV) can lead to liver steatosis, cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma. Herein, we focus on the role in pathogenesis of Core, the capsid protein of the HCV.
