Generally, influenza virus neuraminidase (NA) plays a critical role in the release stage of influenza virus. Recently, it has been found that NA may promote influenza virus to access the target cells. However, the mechanism remain unclear. Here, we reported that peramivir indeed possessed anti-influenza A virus (IAV) activity in the stage of viral entry. Importantly, we verified the critical residues of influenza NA involved in the viral entry. As a result, peramivir as an efficient NA inhibitor could suppress the initiation of IAV infection. Furthermore, mutational analysis showed NA might be associated with viral entry via amino acids residues R118, E119, D151, R152, W178, I222, E227, E276, R292 and R371. Our results demonstrated neuraminidase must contain the key amino acid residues can involve in IAV entry.

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.
A subtype of INFLUENZA A VIRUS comprised of the surface proteins hemagglutinin 7 and neuraminidase 2. It has been involved in a number of outbreaks in the 21st century on poultry farms and has been isolated a few times in humans.
A subtype of INFLUENZA A VIRUS with the surface proteins hemagglutinin 7 and neuraminidase 9. This avian origin virus was first identified in humans in 2013.
A subtype of INFLUENZA A VIRUS comprised of the surface proteins hemagglutinin 1 and neuraminidase 2. It is endemic in both human and pig populations.
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.
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...
