The AIAV-N2 dtec-RT-qPCR comprises a series of specific targeted reagents designed for Avian influenza virus type A subtype N2 detection by using qPCR. Influenza A virus causes influenza in birds and some mammals. Influenzavirus A is a genus of the Orthomyxoviridae family. Strains of all subtypes of influenza A virus have been isolated from wild birds, although disease is uncommon. Some isolates of influenza A virus cause severe disease both in domestic poultry and, rarely, in humans. Occasionally, viruses are transmitted from wild aquatic birds to domestic poultry, and this may cause an outbreak or give rise to human influenza pandemics. Influenza A viruses are negative-sense, single-stranded, segmented RNA viruses. The several subtypes are labelled according to an H number (for the type of hemagglutinin) and an N number (for the type of neuraminidase). There are 17 different H antigens (H1 to H17) and nine different N antigens (N1 to N9). Influenza A is generally recognized as Avian influenza, sometimes called avian flu, and colloquially, bird flu. The antigen N2, is usually associated with the subtypes H3N2 and H7N2, which can cause pneumonia in humans.
