Figure 1: (a) Screening of samples for HCV RNA by amplifying 5′UTR. Lanes 1, 2, and 3: positive samples (232 bp band of 5′UTR), Lane 4: negative sample, Lane 5: negative control, Lane 6: positive control, and Lane M: 100 bp DNA ladder. (b) Amplified products of different HCV genotypes. Lane 1 = 139 bp (HCV genotype 2a), Lane 2 = 176 bp HCV genotype 3b, Lane 3 = 232 bp (HCV genotype 3a), Lane 4 = 176 and 232 bp (HCV genotypes 3b and 3a), Lane 5 = 176 bp HCV genotype 3b, Lane 6 = 232 and 99 bp (HCV genotypes 3a and 4), and Lane M = 100 bp DNA ladder.
