H1N1 D225G and D225N in Moldova Patient. -- (Recombinomics))

 

Included in the series of HA sequences were 8 of 18 samples from Moldova which had changes at position 225.....

The recent end of wave 2 throughout the northern hemisphere creates an opportunity for these co-circulating changes to emerge.  Seasonal influenza A (H1N1 and H3N2) have all but disappeared from the United States and Europe, setting the stage for emergence of competing pandemic H1N1 variants.  In addition to the change at position 225, Q226R is also being reported at higher frequencies in the region, creating multiple opportunities for new combinations via homologous recombination, as was seen in the fixing of H274Y in seasonal H1N1 during the 2008/2009 season......
