Abstract

SUMMARY

The influenza virus H1N1 (the A/USSR/90/77 strain) that reappeared in 1977 after the H1N1 influenza viruses had disappeared from the human population, is compared with the A/FM/1/47 and the A/FW/1/50 influenza viruses by the method of oligonucleotide mapping of individual segments of the viral RNAs. Seven genes of the A/USSR/90/77 virus appear to be very similar to the corresponding genes of the A/FW/1/50 virus, whereas the gene coding for the M protein displays considerable homology to the corresponding gene of the A/FM/1/47 virus. The data demonstrate that the A/USSR/90/77 strain is a recombinant virus.
