Avian influenza type A virus subtype H3
The AIAV-H3 dtec-RT-qPCR comprises a series of specific targeted reagents designed for Avian influenza type A virus subtype H3 detection by using qPCR. Influenza A viruses are negative-sense, single-stranded, segmented RNA viruses belonging to the Orthomyxoviridae family. Influenza type A virus is responsible of a severe respiratory disease with high morbidity and low mortality. The several subtypes are labelled according to an H number (hemagglutinin) and an N number (neuraminidase). There are seventeen different H antigens (H1 to H17) and nine different N antigens (N1 to N9). H3 is mostly related with the subtype H3N2 usually affecting mainly swine but also humans and birds. The assay was designed to cover sequences from the core cluster of the subtype. However, as Influenza virus are fast-evolving microorganisms, the inclusivity can not be ensured for some new clonal strains of the virus.
