Anti-HTNV Drug Discovery Products

Hantaan virus (HTNV) is a member of the Hantavirus genus within the Bunyaviridae family. The virus is known for causing Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome (HPS) in humans. HTNV is considered a zoonotic virus and is transmitted through contact with infected rodents, particularly brown rats. Human-to-human transmission is rare. The virus, discovered in 1976 in Korea during an outbreak of hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome (HFRS), is prevalent in Asia and Europe. HPS manifests with flu-like symptoms, progressing to severe respiratory distress, making early detection crucial.

The genome is a single-stranded negative-sense RNA that consists of three RNA segments, designated as S, M and L. These segments encode two viral surface glycoproteins (G1 and G2), the nucleocapsid (N) protein, and viral polymerase, respectively. Understanding the infection mechanism involves recognizing the role of key viral targets, such as proteins facilitating entry and replication. Creative Biolabs provides HTNV-specific antibody products to support researchers working in this area. Explore our virus antibody products to help advance your research in HTNV and enhance your knowledge of these viruses.
