12 Phylogenetic analysis of H5N1 HA gene from Europe, Africa, and Asia Salzberg SL, et al. EID (5):
14 H5N1 pathology/disease Cell tropism: HA, NA Host immune response: NS High viral replication: PA, PB1, PB2, NP
15 HA cleavability determinates the tissue tropism Horimoto T, et al. Nature Reviews of Microbiology :
16 Effect of HA and NA on replication of influenza virus Influenza viruses bind to sialic acid present on cell surface through the receptor-binding site in the HA molecules followed by receptor-mediated endocytosis during viral entry (Hanson et al., Virology 1992).The NA cleaves the Neu5Ac from the HA molecule to release the progeny virus from the cell membrane and to prevent aggregation of progeny virions (Rogers et al., Virology 1989).This NA enzymatic activity, however, also cleaves the receptor from the target cells.Therefore, the balance between the receptor-binding activity of the HA and the neuraminidase activity of the NA is critical for efficient virus replication in host cells (Kaverin et al., Virology 1998).
17 The NA stalk was correlated with the efficiency of virus replication Castrucci MR, et al. Journal of Virology :

21 Importance of NS1A D92E mutation in NS1 strongly affect the virulence of influenza virus, eg: the H5N1 avian flu virus (Seo et al. 2004) .C-terminal PDZ domain ligand in NS1 act as a potential virulence determinant (Krug et al. 2006) .Amino acid 89 in the NS1 protein as being critical for binding to p85 (Hale et al. 2006).Phe-103 and Met-106 residues in NS1 is critical for CPSF binding (Kochs et al. 2007).
22 NS1 gene E92 and del 80-84 may affect RNA binding affinity H5N1 of Hong Kong outbreakNat.Struct.Mol.Biol. 2006E92 and del may affect RNA binding affinityCytokine-resistance
23 Role of PB2 genesA E627K mutation in PB2 strongly affect the virulence of influenza virus, eg: the 1918 flu virus and the H5N1 avian flu virus (Gillis et al. 2005).Majority of avian viruses have PB2 E627 except Qinghai lineage, it may be one adaptation of virus to mammalian host.
