Wild birds in Chile Harbor diverse avian influenza A viruses

PMCID: 5874252
PMID: 29593259
DOI: 10.1038/s41426-018-0046-9
call_split See protocol

[…] Influenza gene sequences were obtained from the NCBI Influenza Virus Database (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/genomes/FLU/Database) as accessed in November 2017. Only full-length genes from the Americas, Europe, and Asian avian strains were included while […]


Amino Acid Substitutions HA A150V, PA A343T, and PB2 E627K Increase the Virulence of H5N6 Influenza Virus in Mice

Front Microbiol
PMCID: 5859062
PMID: 29593694
DOI: 10.3389/fmicb.2018.00453

[…] hanced binding with SAα2,6 receptors (Table ). To test whether the substitution found in mouse adaption is also relevant in human strains, we examined all the sequences of H5 influenza A virus in the Influenza Virus Database of NCBI (). Interestingly, we found 11 strains (8,008 strains of H5 influenza in total) with valine in HA 150 in the database as of November 2017. Of those, 91% (10/11) of the […]


Impact of Mutations in the Hemagglutinin of H10N7 Viruses Isolated from Seals on Virus Replication in Avian and Human Cells

PMCID: 5850390
PMID: 29443887
DOI: 10.3390/v10020083

[…] rparts, in addition to those detected in mammals, as well as avian H10Nx viruses from non-European countries were retrieved from the Global Initiative on Sharing Avian Influenza Data (GISAID) and the Influenza Virus Database of the National Center for Biotechnology Information. Acknowledgment of authors and laboratories submitting to the GISAID is provided in . All sequences were aligned with Mult […]


Phylogenetic Analysis and Characterization of a Sporadic Isolate of Equine Influenza A H3N8 from an Unvaccinated Horse in 2015

PMCID: 5795444
PMID: 29324680
DOI: 10.3390/v10010031

[…] sporadic infection occurred from the contaminated premises, as there were no other horses on the premises reported to have EIV infection, according to available information to us. We also checked the influenza virus database (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/genomes/FLU/Database/nph-select.cgi?go=database, accessed 5 January 2018) to gather information on the EIV isolates reported from North America f […]


Temporal distribution and genetic variants in influenza A(H1N1)pdm09 virus circulating in Mexico, seasons 2012 and 2013

PLoS One
PMCID: 5722308
PMID: 29220381
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0189363
call_split See protocol

[…] l length genes from A(H1N1)pdm09 viruses isolated from Yucatan during the 2012 and 2013 was performed with Geneious v6.0 (accession numbers are listed in ). All sequences were deposited at the GISAID influenza virus database (http://platform.gisaid.org). Additionally, we retrieve 61-HA and 46-NA sequences from Mexico (non-Yucatan) that were available from the two years of study; however, the seque […]


Hydrogen Bond Variations of Influenza A Viruses During Adaptation in Human

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5662722
PMID: 29085020
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-14533-3

[…] h sequences for ten proteins (HA, NA, NS1, NS2, M1, M2, NP, PA, PB1, and PB2) of IAVs isolations between 1918 and June 2017 from the GISAID database (http://platform.gisaid.org/epi3/frontend) and the Influenza Virus Database in NCBI. Sequences from these two databases were merged. For human IAVs, we mainly considered epidemic seasonal H1N1, H2N2 and H3N2 strains. The human H2N2 contained less than […]
