Influenza Antibodies

There are four types of influenza viruses (A, B, C, and D); type A can infect a wide variety of species, type B only affects humans, type C infects humans and pigs, and type D is specific for cattle and swine.

  • The most virulent types of influenza A viruses are mainly referred to by their subtypes. These are based on two surface proteins — hemagglutinin (H) and neuraminidase (N); 18 H and 11 N subtypes exist
  • Influenza B viruses are classified into two strains but not subtypes: B/Yamagata and B/Victoria
  • Influenza type C and D viruses have not been assigned strains or subtypes to date

Read the review ‘Immune Response to Influenza A Virus’ for an introduction to how influenza infects the cell, which markers are key to immune defense, and which cells are the main effectors in the immune response to influenza A. This is a good place to start when planning anti-viral immune defense experiments.

Our range of anti-influenza antibodies, specific for influenza Ainfluenza B, and the subtypes of influenza A, come in a variety of formats, as shown in the table below. These antibodies are suitable for western blottingimmunofluorescenceimmunohistochemistryimmunoprecipitation, and ELISA.
