Receptor specificity of human, pandemic, swine, and avian H1 influenza viruses. Association constants (Kass, 1/μM sialic acid) of virus complexes with sialylglycopolymers conjugated to 3′-sialyllactose (avian-like Neu5Acα2,3Gal-containing receptor, white bars) and 6′-sialyllactosamine (human-like Neu5Acα2,6Gal-containing receptor, black bars). Higher Kass values indicate stronger binding. Values are the mean ± SD of 4 independent experiments (1/μM sialic acid). 1, A/Brisbane/59/2007; 2, A/New Je
