Abstract

A panel of influenza A viruses expressing chimeric hemagglutinins (cHA) with intragroup or intergroup head/stalk combinations was generated. Viruses were characterized for growth kinetics and preservation of stalk epitopes. With a few notable exceptions, cHA viruses behaved similarly to wild-type viruses and maintained stalk epitopes, which indicated their potential as vaccine candidates to induce stalk-specific antibodies.
