H7N9 Carries Genes from Rare H9N2, H7N3, H4N9, H11N9 Bird Flu Viruses A team of microbiologists led by Prof Chen Hualan of the Harbin Veterinary Research Institute investigated the origins of a new influenza A (H7N9) virus by testing samples collected from live poultry markets and poultry farms located in Shanghai and Anhui Province, China.
According to the GenBank database, the HA genes of the novel isolated viruses were most similar to those from duck H7N3 influenza viruses, sharing 95.2-95.8 per cent homology at the nucleotide level. The NA gene of the virus isolates shared highest homology (97.3-97.9 per cent) with NA genes from H4N9, H11N9 influenza viruses isolated from ducks, and environmental samples from DUCK farms.
