The Influenza viruses, designated Influenza A, Influenza B and Influenza C, are a group of RNA viruses that belong to the Orthomyxoviridae family and are constantly changing through antigenic drifts and shifts, allowing the viruses to evade the immune system of the host. The viruses transcribe and replicate their genomes in the nuclei of infected cells and rely on the nucleocytoplasmic transport of viral ribonucleoproteins (vRNPs) during their replication process. Influenza B contains several viral proteins, namely Influenza B NP (nucleoprotein), Influenza B HA (hemagglutinin), Influenza B M1 (matrix protein) and Influenza B NA (neuraminidase), all of which are necessary for proper viral function, such as viral DNA replication, transcription, RNA processing and protein synthesis. Influenza A causes pandemics, while Influenza B usually causes minor illnesses (such as the common flu) and Influenza C can lead to mild or asymptomatic disease.
