Hepatitis C virus (HCV) purification by ultracentrifugation is difficult because of the low and heterogeneous density of native and cultured viruses. It was recently shown that inserting flag tag into envelope protein 2 (E2) of HCV permitted virus purification by affinity chromatography. However, flag-tagged viruses had drastically altere...More
