PMCID: 5610819
PMID: 29082265
DOI: 10.1155/2017/6412353

[…] 2esv, human cytomegalovirus complexes with t-cell receptors, and vmaprtlil peptide were used for this purpose. the gridline was used at the center of x: 77.3404, y: −3.5159, and z: −9.5829., the allerhunter server [] was used to predict the allergenicity of our proposed epitope for further securing the prediction, and the support vector machine (svm) algorithm was used for the prediction […]

PMID: 28356762
DOI: 10.2147/AABC.S115859

[…] iedb was applied to determine the population coverage for every single epitope by selecting hla alleles of the corresponding epitope., allergenicity of the predicted epitope was calculated using allerhunter, which can predict both nonallergens and allergens with a high level of accuracy, by comparing the input sequence with the sequence of known allergen., the three-dimensional structures […]

DOI: 10.1038/srep34427

[…] motif sequences for blast searches against the allergy database ( the results showed that no sequence homology was found in the database. we have also used allerhunter ( and allerdictor ( for allergen prediction of tktkk1 and tktkk2. no potential allergen […]

[…] to interact with most mhc-i alleles with high affinity. they next determined the conservancy of the b-cell epitopes from the iedb (immune epitope database) server [] and allergenicity from the allerhunter tool and found this epitope to have 64.29% conservancy and an allergencity score well below threshold value. the next step was a molecular docking analysis, of the selected peptide […]

[…] neural network prediction method to predict the potential nonamers that may efficiently bind to the binding groove of the mhc molecules., in order to assay the degrees of allergenicity we operated allerhunter ( a combinational prediction by using both support vector machine (svm) and pair-wise sequence similarity makes allerhunter […]
