  • Relevance
    An H6N1 influenza virus was isolated from a green-winged teal during the H5N1 outbreak in Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR) in 1997. This virus possesses similar genes encoding internal proteins as in the human H5N1 and H9N2 influenza viruses. In 1999, influenza viruses from quail infected two humans in Hong Kong, suggesting the potential for avian influenza viruses to cross the species barrier and infect humans without prior reassortment in an intermediate host, such as the pig. The common features shared by H5N1 and H9N2 influenza viruses isolated from humans are the genes encoding the proteins of the replicating complex, the matrix protein (M) gene, the nonstructural protein (NS) gene, N1 neuraminidase (NA), This virus essentially represents the reemergence of the H5N1 influenza viruses with a different hemagglutinin (HA).

Thank you for contacting us.

I apologize for the wait, but I have not yet heard back from the lab. I have sent another email to follow up with them.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Thank you for getting back to me. Please can you tell me what you mean by a protective antibody? Do you mean does it counteract an avian flu infection? I appreciate any clarity that you can add to this enquiry. I look forward to hearing from you.
