INFLUENZA DESIGN

 

An influenza virus is made up of single-stranded, negative sense RNA in eight segments. This means that the virus needs to use a host to convert its genetic information into positive sense (“forward”) material to be able to start transcription. The virus creates a membrane using host lipids, and the outside of the membrane is coated in glycoproteins. Influenza A has two proteins called hemagglutinin and neuramidase; these can both be seen in this influenza print.

First isolated in 1933, when scientists realised influenza was different to bacterial pneumonia, these pathogenic particles can be subdivided into types A, B and C. The latter two infect humans only, but type A is known to infect a range of other warm-blooded animals, including pigs, cattle, seals and birds. Birds in particular act as host reservoirs, basically storing the virus between human infections.
