    Default Antigenic drift

    When talking about antigenic drift one of the processes of the HA is the following:

    If the HA gene changes, so can the antigen that it encodes, causing it to change form.

    My translation is below.

    Si el gen HA cambia, codifica al antígeno y hace que cambie su estructura.

    However, I'd like to check if it's ok.

    Thanks a lot again!!!

    "si el gen HA cambia, tambien cambia el antígeno que éste codifica, lo que hace que cambie su estructura"

    Looks like the gene encondes the antigen and if the gene changes, so does the antigen.

    "En la jerga de los genéticos, el verbo codificar se usa frecuentemente para explicar que un gen contiene las instrucciones para sintetizar una proteína ..."

    I would say, "si el gen HA cambia, también lo puede hacer el antígeno codificado..."

    The thing is that if the gene changes, the antigen does no necessarily change too.

    Yes, you are right,Veronica. I missed "can" in the translation...

    o.k. Mariela:
    IT´S ALMOST FINE BUT NOT NECESSARY THE HA GENE ENCODES THE ANTIGEN I BELIEVE IS BETTER TO UNDERSTAND AS IS WRITTEN WICH REFERS THAT " CAN " SO IT IS A POSIBILITY NOT A CAUSE EFFECT RELATIONSHIP,O.K.?

    Sí el gene HA cambia, puede hacerlo también el antígeno que codifica, ocasionando que cambie su forma.

    En las reacciones antigeno antcuerpo la forma que no necesariamnte coincide con la estructura es esencial.
    Espero que sea util.

    Si el gen de la HA [hemaglutinina] cambia, también puede hacerlo el antígeno que éste [el gen] codifica, ocasionando que cambie de forma [el antígeno] [here, form=shape, spatial arrangement]

    I think "estructura" could also work out fine. "Estructura antigénica" is quite a usual term in immunology. Cheers, Gentle

    Default Mutación

    Btw..."antigenic drift" should be "mutación antigénica"
