Equine influenza virus is an important pathogen for the horse industry because of its economic impact, and vaccination is a key control measure. Our previous work suggested that a mutation at position 144 in the hemagglutinin of Florida sublineage clade 2 viruses reduces the cross-neutralizing activity of antiserum against a former vaccine strain. To confirm this suggestion, here, we generated viruses by reverse genetics. Antibody titers against the mutated viruses were one-tenth to one-sixteenth of those against the former vaccine strain. Our findings confirm that this single amino acid substitution reduces the cross-reactivity of antiserum against this former Japanese vaccine.
