HPV L1 protein

Human papillomaviruses (HPVs) cause approximately 5% of cancer cases worldwide.

Persistent infection with high-risk HPV (HR-HPV) types (HPV16, 18, 26, 31, 33, 35, 39, 45, 51, 52, 53, 56, 58, 59, 66, 70, 73, 82) is associated with ~94% of anal cancers, ~63% of penile cancers, ~74% of vaginal cancers, ~5–20% of head & neck squamous cell carcinomas, and nearly all cases of cervical cancers.

There are some prophylactic vaccines have been approved to protect against certain types of HPV infections. The vaccines are composed of virus-like particles (VLPs) derived from HPV major capsid protein (L1).
