Summary of "Amino acid substitutions involved in the adaptation of a novel H7N7 avian influenza virus in mice."

The H7N7 avian influenza viruses can infect humans and poses a great threat to human health. To identify the amino acid substitutions that are associated with adaptation of avian-origin H7N7 virus to mammals, adaptation of the H7N7 virus was carried out by serial lung-to-lung passage in mice. Genomic analysis of the mouse-adapted virus revealed amino acid changes in the PB2 (E525G, M645I, and D701N), NP (I475V), HA(D103N), and NA(K142E) proteins. The adapted H7N7 virus was more virulent in mice than the wild-type virus. Our results suggest that continued surveillance of poultry populations for these substitutions in the H7N7 virus is required.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Fibrinogens which have a functional defect as the result of one or more amino acid substitutions in the amino acid sequence of normal fibrinogen. Abnormalities of the fibrinogen molecule may impair any of the major steps involved in the conversion of fibrinogen into stabilized fibrin, such as cleavage of the fibrinopeptides by thrombin, polymerization and cross-linking of fibrin. The resulting dysfibrinogenemias can be clinically silent or can be associated with bleeding, thrombosis or defective wound healing.

A subtype of INFLUENZA A VIRUS comprised of the surface proteins hemagglutinin 7 and neuraminidase 7. The H7N7 subtype produced an epidemic in 2003 which was highly pathogenic among domestic birds (POULTRY). Some infections in humans were reported.

A group of abnormal hemoglobins in which amino acid substitutions take place in either the alpha or beta chains but near the heme iron. This results in facilitated oxidation of the hemoglobin to yield excess methemoglobin which leads to cyanosis.

A group of abnormal hemoglobins with similar electrophoretic characteristics. They have faster electrophoretic mobility and different amino acid substitutions in either the alpha or beta chains than normal adult hemoglobin. Some of the variants produce hematologic abnormalities, others result in no clinical disorders.

A non-essential amino acid occurring in natural form as the L-isomer. It is synthesized from GLYCINE or THREONINE. It is involved in the biosynthesis of PURINES; PYRIMIDINES; and other amino acids.
