This mouse IgG2a monoclonal antibody [39E4] was generated against inactivated virus and specific for H1 hemagglutinin (HA) of influenza virus A/South Carolina/1/1918 (H1N1).
Influenza A (H1N1) virus is the subtype of influenza A virus that was the most common cause of human influenza (flu) outbreaks in 2009 as well as 1918. H1N1 is an orthomyxovirus because it contains the glycoproteins haemagglutinin and neuraminidase. Haemagglutinin causes red blood cells to clump together and binds the virus to the infected cell. In Neuraminidase are a type of glycoside hydrolase enzyme which help to move the virus particles through the infected cell and assist in budding from the host cells.
