Interregional Transmission of the Internal Protein Genes of H2 Influenza Virus in Migratory Ducks from North America to Eurasia

Abstract

H2 influenza virus caused a pandemic in 1957 and has the possibility to cause outbreaks in the future. To assess the evolutionary characteristics of H2 influenza viruses isolated from migratory ducks that congregate in Hokkaido, Japan, on their flyway of migration from Siberia in 2001, we investigated the phylogenetic relationships among these viruses and… (More)
