Structural insights into the potential changes in receptor binding site found in the 1998-2018 influenza B/Yamagata hemagglutinin: A putative correlation between receptor binding site structural variability and seasonal infection.


Abstract Influenza B virus has two distinct lineages (Victoria and Yamagata) and are associated with seasonal influenza epidemics that cause respiratory illness. Influenza B hemagglutinin (HA) is a major surface glycoprotein with the receptor-binding site (RBS) primarily involved in viral pathogenesis. Generally, influenza B exclusively infects the human population […]
