Abstract

Hepatitis virus infection is an important infection in medicine. There are many hepatitis viruses. There are many new researches on molecular biology aspect of hepatitis viruses. The author hereby presents some new example on epitope preference in wild and mutated precore of hepatitis B virus, weak linkage in HGV 5' non-coding region and transmembrane topology of hepatitis B envelope proteins.

Keywords:

hepatitis B, mutation, precore, envelop proteins, tranmembrane, topology, hepatitis G, structure, weak linkage, mutation.
