Influenza B virus is predominantly a human pathogen, although it has been found to infect seals. The limited host range of influenza B and a slower rate of mutation than influenza A appears to preclude development of influenza B pandemics, but influenza B is a significant human pathogen and on an individual basis, infection may result in death.
Influenza B Open Reading Frames
An open reading frame or ORF is a portion of an organism's genome which contains a sequence of bases that could potentially encode a protein. In a gene, ORFs are located between the start-code sequence (initiation codon) and the stop-code sequence (termination codon).

Influenza B Antibodies
Monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies to proteins of the virus as well as non-structural regulatory and assembly proteins. All have been evaluated for IFA and western blot function.
Influenza B Antigens
Infected cell extracts, nuclear extracts, density gradient purified virus, glycoprotein fractions and more. Many are characterized with a full SDS-PAGE and western blot profile.
