Summary of "Characterization of three clade 2.3.4.4 H5 highly pathogenic avian influenza viruses isolated from wild birds."

We isolated and characterized three H5 HPAIVs with different NA subtypes (N1, N6 and N8) during avian influenza virus (AIV) surveillance in wild birds during 2015-2016. The P126/H5N1, P560/H5N6 and ST/H5N8 viruses were highly pathogenic to chickens and ducks. Furthermore, P126/H5N1 and P560/H5N6 showed high pathogenicity in mice. Continued circulation of these influenza virus strains clearly poses a significant potential health threat to poultry and human populations.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A subtype of INFLUENZA A VIRUS that is highly virulent in poultry and wild birds, but shows varying degrees of pathogenicity in mice. The H5N8 virus subtype has a polybasic amino acid motif at the HA cleavage site which explains its pathogenicity in birds, and expresses surface proteins HEMAGGLUTININ 5 and NEURAMINIDASE 8 which are typical of Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza viruses.

Infection of domestic and wild fowl and other BIRDS with INFLUENZA A VIRUS. Avian influenza usually does not sicken birds, but can be highly pathogenic and fatal in domestic POULTRY.

A subtype of INFLUENZA A VIRUS comprised of the surface proteins hemagglutinin 7 and neuraminidase 1. This subtype has demonstrated the ability to mutate from a low pathogenic form to a highly pathogenic form in birds. It was responsible for a 1999 outbreak in turkeys in Italy.

Membrane glycoproteins from influenza viruses which are involved in hemagglutination, virus attachment, and envelope fusion. Fourteen distinct subtypes of HA glycoproteins and nine of NA glycoproteins have been identified from INFLUENZA A VIRUS; no subtypes have been identified for Influenza B or Influenza C viruses.

A subtype of INFLUENZA A VIRUS comprised of the surface proteins hemagglutinin 5 and neuraminidase 2. The H5N2 subtype has been found to be highly pathogenic in chickens.
