In this work, we report a fluorescence method for homogeneous detection of influenza A (H1N1) DNA sequence based on G-quadruplex-NMM complex and Assistance DNA (A-DNA) inhibition. The quadruplex-based functional DNA (QBF-DNA), composed of complementary probe to the target H1N1 DNA sequence and G-rich fragment, was designed as the signal DNA. The A-DNA consisted of two parts, one part was complementary to target H1N1 DNA and the other part was complementary to the signal DNA. In the absence of target H1N1 DNA, the G-rich fragment of QBF-DNA can form G-quadruplex-NMM complex, which outputted a fluorescent signal. With the presence of target H1N1 DNA, QBF-DNA and A-DNA can simultaneously hybridize with target H1N1 DNA to form double-helix structure. In this case, the A-DNA partially hybridized with the QBF-DNA, which inhibited the formation of G-quadruplex-NMM complex, leading to the decrease of fluorescent signal. Under the optimum conditions, the fluorescence intensity was inversely proportional to the concentration of target H1N1 DNA over the range from 25pmol/L to 700pmol/L with a detection limit of 8pmol/L. In addition, the method is target specific and practicability, and would become a new diagnostic assay for influenza A (H1N1) DNA sequence and other infectious diseases.

Influenza virus infections in humans and animals are major public health concerns. In the current study, a set of universal influenza enrichment probes was developed to increase the sensitivity of seq...
Hemagglutinin (HA) is a glycoprotein found on the surface of influenza A subtype virus H1N1 which play a major role in infection to the human by binding the virus to cells with sialic acid on the memb...
We present a novel vertical flow-based paper immunosensor for the rapid and sensitive electrochemical and colorimetric detection of influenza H1N1 viruses using a different pore size (DP) sample pad. ...
Simple and reliable detection of influenza viruses is important for timely prescription of antiviral therapy. Here, we developed a facile fluorometric system for detection of influenza subtype viral g...
Seasonal influenza viruses undergo frequent mutations on their surface hemagglutinin (HA) proteins to escape the host immune response. In these mutations, a few key amino acid sites are associated wit...
The spread of Influenza H1N1 has prompted the development of vaccines against this virus. IBD patients are at increased risk of developing complications of Influenza H1N1. The efficacy and...
Treatment options are limited for the new strain of the H1N1 influenza virus, which differs from the seasonal H1N1 influenza virus. This study will collect blood from people who have been ...

This is to evaluate immunogenicity based on EMEA/CHMP criteria, and safety & tolerability of cell-derived A/H1N1 influenza HA vaccine in healthy Japanese elderly subjects.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether CSL425 is a safe and effective vaccine for eliciting an immune response to H1N1 influenza in healthy children.
A subtype of INFLUENZA A VIRUS comprised of the surface proteins hemagglutinin 1 and neuraminidase 1. The H1N1 subtype was responsible for the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918.
Fluoroimmunoassay where detection of the hapten-antibody reaction is based on measurement of the increased polarization of fluorescence-labeled hapten when it is combined with antibody. The assay is very useful for the measurement of small haptenic antigens such as drugs at low concentrations.
A genus of the family ORTHOMYXOVIRIDAE comprising viruses similar to types A and B but less common, more stable, more homogeneous, and lacking the neuraminidase protein. They have not been associated with epidemics but may cause mild influenza. Influenza C virus is the type species.
Detection of drugs that have been abused, overused, or misused, including legal and illegal drugs. Urine screening is the usual method of detection.
An analytical method for detecting and measuring FLUORESCENCE in compounds or targets such as cells, proteins, or nucleotides, or targets previously labeled with FLUORESCENCE AGENTS.
Swine Flu - H1N1 influenza - H7N9
Swine flu is the common name given to a relatively new strain of influenza (flu) that caused a flu pandemic in 2009-2010. It is also referred to as H1N1 influenza (because it is the H1N1 strain of virus). The H1N1 flu virus will be one of the main vi...
Influenza or 'flu' is a respiratory illness associated with infection by influenza virus. Symptoms frequently include headache, fever, cough, sore throat, aching muscles and joints. There is a wide spectrum of severity of illness ranging from min...
