Alignment of putative PB1-F2 amino acid sequences of 24 Taiwanese H1N1 strains and 10 H1N1 reference strains. Most strains, including 23 Taiwanese strains and 5 reference strains, contained a truncated open reading frame (ORF) 57 residues long. One reference strain, A/Wisconsin/3523/88, had the ORF truncated at 11 residues. PB1-F2 of A/Puerto Rico/8/34 with 87 residues is placed on top of the alignment. One Taiwanese strain and three reference strains each contained a complete PB1-F2 of 90 resid
