Recombinant Chikungunya E Protein (Cat# 21231334)
Chikungunya virus (CHIKV) is a alphavirus having about 30 members. It is originated in Africa, carried by mosquito, and enters human via mosquito bite. Common symptoms for this virial infectious are chikungunya fever, joint pain/swelling, headache, muscle pain, skin rash.
Several methods can be used for Chikungunya Virus diagnosis, including enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISA) and molecular identification (RT-PCR). ELISA may confirm the presence of IgM and IgG anti-chikungunya antibodies after virus infection. IgG could be detected as early as a couple of days, and last for more than 3 months, IgM antibody appears in about 3-5 weeks, persists for about 2 months. Samples collected during the first week after the onset of symptoms should be tested by both serological and virological methods (RT-PCR).
