Hepatitis B Virus Pre-S Gene Mutations in Children with Chronic Hepatitis B Infection
Jae Young Kim, Woo Yeong Chung, Chul Ho Kim
Clin Exp Pediatr. 2000;43(9):1232-1240.   Published online September 15, 2000
Purpose : The envelope of HBV consists of three polypeptides which are encoded in pre-S/S open reading frame. Three translation initiation sites are present within this pre-S/S open reading frame, i.e. pre-S1, pre-S2, and S, allowing the expression of large, middle and small HBs proteins. The pre-S1 is thought to carry the receptor binding site for viral entry into hepatocyte...

Clin Exp Pediatr. 1996;39(6):846-855.   Published online June 15, 1996
Purpose : The insulin like growth factors (IGFs) circulate complexed to IGF-binding proteins(IGFBPs).
