Novel Immunoinformatics Approaches to Design Multi epitope Subunit Vaccine for Malaria by Investigating Anopheles Salivary Protein

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5773588
PMID: 29348555
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-19456-1
call_split See protocol

[…] he potential of a material to cause sensitization and allergic reactions associated with the IgE antibody response. Therefore, the predicted vaccine construct must be free from the allergenic nature. AllerTOP v. 2.0 was used to check the allergenicity of the vaccine construct based on the method that uses auto cross-covariance (ACC) transformation of protein sequences into uniform equal-length vec […]


Predicted Release and Analysis of Novel ACE I, Renin, and DPP IV Inhibitory Peptides from Common Oat (Avena sativa) Protein Hydrolysates Using in Silico Analysis

PMCID: 5742776
PMID: 29207547
DOI: 10.3390/foods6120108

[…] > 2), and trypsin. Toxicity was scanned with default settings using ToxinPred, which is available at []. Allergenicity was predicted using AllerTOP, which is available at [] (). […]


Comprehensive in silico allergenicity assessment of novel protein engineered chimeric Cry proteins for safe deployment in crops

BMC Biotechnol
PMCID: 5541426
PMID: 28768539
DOI: 10.1186/s12896-017-0384-z

[…] AllerTop ( [] is another web based server that was used in the study for validation of the chimeric proteins. It is an alignment-free server that predicts allergenicity of pr […]


Enzyme Assisted Discovery of Antioxidant Peptides from Edible Marine Invertebrates: A Review

Mar Drugs
PMCID: 5334622
PMID: 28212329
DOI: 10.3390/md15020042

[…] assessed in silico for toxicity and allergenicity []. Potential toxicity was predicted using the ToxinPred web server []. Potential allergenicity of the peptides was assessed by using AlgPred [] and AllerTOP []. In silico analyses predicted that all the peptides were non-toxic, although 564 peptides were predicted to be potential allergens. Such a large-scale screening of peptides for toxicity an […]


In silico proposition to predict cluster of B and T cell epitopes for the usefulness of vaccine design from invasive, virulent and membrane associated proteins of C. jejuni

PMCID: 4932005
PMID: 27376537
DOI: 10.1186/s40203-016-0020-y

[…] respectively from FlaA, MOMP, PEB3, CadF proteins were capable of inducing the desired immune response as B cell epitope. Among them “EINKN” and “LDENGCE” were also found non-allergen as predicted by AllerTOP 1.0 tool.For T cell epitope prediction, plenty of algorithms are freely available and in this study we employed IEDB analysis tool which is possibly the most wide-ranging database offering se […]
