Reagents, Molecular Assay, Infection, Virus, Hepatitis B, Genotype
Definition : Molecular assay reagents intended to identify hepatitis B virus, a DNA virus of the genus Hepadnavirus, family Hepadnaviridae, by detecting the specific genetic constitution (i.e., the genotype) of the target virus. Hepatitis B virus genotypes may cause hepatitis, a disease characterized by jaundice and the increase of some enzymes in serum (e.g., aspartate aminotransferase); these viruses may be transmitted percutaneously (e.g., via body piercing, tattooing), parenterally, from mother to child at birth, or by intimate (e.g., sexual) contact.
