Genetic characterization of the hemagglutinin gene of influenza B virus which predominated in the 1985/86 Canadian influenza season.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To characterize the hemagglutinin (HA) gene of B/Canada/3/85, a prototype strain of influenza B virus variants that emerged in the 1984/85 influenza season and predominated in the 1985/86 season in Canada. DESIGN Sequencing and comparison of the HA genes of B/Canada/3/85 and the vaccine strains for the 1985/86 season, B/USSR/100/83, and for the… (More)
