DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-23029-7

[…] families in the studied genomes were taken from orthomcl results., sequences of immunoreactive proteins were searched for potential epitopes using 15 predictive approaches: aap, bcpred, bepipred, cbtope, cobepro, fbcpred, igpred, svmtrip, as well as bcepred based on seven amino acid physico-chemical scales, hydrophilicity, flexibility, accessibility, turns, antigenic propensity, exposed […]

[…] [] ()., as remarked before, methods for conformational b-cell epitope prediction generally require the 3d-structure of the antigen. exceptionally, however, ansari and raghava [] developed a method (cbtope) for the identification of conformational b-cell epitope from the primary sequence of the antigen. cbtope is based on svm and trained on physicochemical and sequence-derived features […]

[…] a data set with computationally defined epitopes. this proposed sequence-based method achieved outstanding performance - about twice that of existing methods, including the sequence-based predictor cbtope and three other structure-based predictors., the proposed method uses only antigen sequence information, and thus has much broader applications., b-cell immunity provides a natural barrier […]

[…] could be due to the difficulty in predicting conformational epitopes from amino acid sequences [], it is estimated that 90% of b-cell epitope binding is conformational []. to model this information cbtope [] (a conformational b-cell epitope predictor) was included in this study, however annotation features derived from cbtope were not present in the top ten annotation features used […]

[…] at 0.81 and 0.85 for the fragment-based prediction and 0.57 and 0.6 for full antigen. best outperforms several modern sequence-based b-cell epitope predictors including abcpred, bcpred, cobepro, and cbtope []., svmtrip employs support vector machine to combine the tripeptide similarity and propensity scores to predict linear epitopes. svmtrip achieves a sensitivity of 80.1% and a precision […]
