This antibody reacted with HA protein of most of Influenza B virus isolates belonging to Victoria group tested (70/73 strains) and none of clinical 27 isolates belonging to Yamagata group as examined by PAP staining. However later test with IF staining it also reacts with some of Yamagata group strains like B/Florida/4/2006. However, note that HA changes during passages and may change reactivity to this antibody.
