Data and statistics on the Influenza virus life cycle | Zanran | Influenza | Scoop.it

Data & statistics on influenza virus life cycle: Inhibition of influenza A/PR/8/34 multiplication in MDCK Cav-1 knock-down cells. Titres of A/PR8 infected MDCK Cav-1 knock-down cells at day 13-17 after RNAi vector treatment and infection with influenza A/PR/8/34. Standard errors are depicted. Analysis using a paired t-test (n = 9) revealed that the 1,5 to 3 fold reduction in titres compared to MDCK control cells is statistically highly significant ..., Influenza A virus NS1 full length protein sequences aligned using the MUSCL program and subsequently order as a phylogenetic tree using CLUSTALW. The results of the single-linkage clustering determined there are 6 NS1 clades in the Influenza samples., The 1918 Spanish Influenza Flu Pandemic...
