[The nature of the influenza C virus receptor and the specificity of the receptor-destroying enzyme].

Bacterial neuraminidases destroy influenza C virus receptors of chick erythrocytes and inactivate hemagglutination inhibitors: rat alpha 1-macroglobulin (RMG) and bovine submaxillary mucin (BSM). These data indicate that neuraminic acid may be a component of influenza C virus receptor. The inhibiting activity of RMG and BSM is also eliminated by the… CONTINUE READING
