Infection by the hepatitic C virus is a serious problem for human health and ti date there are vaccines available against this pathogen. This work describes a chimeric protein (Eq1) encompassing hepatitic C virus amino acid regions from structural antigens expressed in bacterial. Eq1 was found to be recognized by anti- hepatitic C human sera and to be immunogenic in mice.
