Why dont you ask Walter Gerhard. He has lots of monoclonals to HA.
With Medline you should anyhow be able to find papers of him regarding
mAbs specific for known determinants on HA.

Regarding the full sequnce of PR/8/34, arent you able to use GCG with
your known Canton reference (just pick a piece of it) and "fasta"?
One of the references you do find (if not to lazy) is Winter, Fields
and Brownlee. Just a hint: if you use the peptide sequence "FERFEIFPK"
for searching with GCG you will be able to find lots of HAs of different
strains, including the one you need.

Good luck
