Structural changes in the haemagglutinin which accompany egg adaptation of an influenza A(H1N1) virus.
Antigenic changes are often induced in the haemagglutinin (HA) of human isolates of influenza A(H1N1) and B viruses during their isolation and propagation in embryonated hens' eggs. In this report weExpand
