Technical Data
Rubella, Capsid Protein (German Measles)
Rubella virus is a human pathogen that causes Rubella (also known as German measles). Rubella is a mild disease characterised by a low-grade fever and possibly a rash. Infection of a woman during the first trimester of pregnancy is far more serious and can lead to a range of birth defects commonly known as congenital rubella syndrome (CRS).

The capsid protein is a non-glycosylated, phosphorylated, disulfide-linked homodimer of 33-38kD. The protein contains clusters of proline and arginine residues, thought to be involved in binding to the viral RNA to form viral nucleocapsids.

Suitable for use in ELISA and Immunoblot. Other applications not tested.
