A family of cDNA sequences derived from hepatitis C virus (HCV) are provided. These sequences encode antigens which react immunologically with antibodies present in individuals with non-A non-B hepatitis (NANBH), but which generally are absent from individuals infected with hepatitis A virus (HAV) o ...

Edward J Rebar, Carl O Pabo: Zinc finger proteins with high affinity new DNA binding specificities. Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Hamilton Brook Smith & Reynolds P C, August 4, 1998: US05789538 (226 worldwide citation)

Described is a polypeptide comprising one or more zinc fingers. The polypeptide binds to new polynucleotide subsites with high affinity and consequently has a binding specificity that differs from wild type zinc finger proteins. The binding occurs through contacts between certain amino acid residues ...
