Comparison of antigenic mutation during egg and cell passage cultivation of H3N2 influenza virus.

Abstract Purpose: When influenza viruses are cultured in eggs, amino acid mutations of the hemagglutinin may occur through egg adaptation. On the other hand, when influenza viruses are cultured in animal cells, no antigenic mutation occurs unlike in eggs. Therefore, we examined whether the antigenic mutations actually occurred after […]
