PMCID: 4742598
PMID: 26866023
DOI: 10.7774/cevr.2016.5.1.41

[…] the dinnna online software was used for disulfide bound prediction (http://clavius.bc.edu/~clotelab/dianna/)., web-based algorithm servers, bcepred (http://www.imtech.res.in/raghava/bcepred/) and discotope (http://www.cbs.dtu.dk/services/discotop/), were used for prediction of continuous and discontinue b-cell epitopes, respectively. mhc super type a1 by netctl 1.2 server […]

[…] analyzed to predict continuous and discontinuous b cell epitopes using the bcepred program (http://www.imtech.res.in/raghava/bcepred)[] and the disco tope 1.2 server (http://www.cbs.dtu.dk/services/discotope/), respectively.[], among different haplotypes of major histocompatibility molecules (mhc) in mice, those of the balb/c mice harboring h2d were selected. these alleles contain i-ad and i-ed […]

[…] linear b cell epitope by all profiles (4/5, 80%) except antigenicity (see fig. ). second, (b) using the crystal structure of tmkmt (pdb entry: “1g3u”) and discontinuous b cell epitope software discotope, we derived 22 amino acids ( a:g57, a:e148, a:s150, a:r151, a:g152, a:r153, a:a154, a:q155, a:r156, a:d157, a:p158, a:g159, a:a160, a:a161, a:r162, a:a163, a:n164, a:e166, a:r167, a:d168, […]

[…] and amino acid substitutions were mapped on the predicted structure using chimera v1.10.2 ()., next, we predicted b-cell conformational epitopes in the capsid protein in the structural models by discotope2.0 (), bepro (), epces (), and epsvr (). we used these tools with cut-offs of -3.7 (discotope2.0), 1.3 (bepro), and 70 (epces, epsvr). we accepted sites as b-cell conformational epitopes […]

[…] methods to predict conformational b-cell epitopes (). the first to be introduced was cep [], which relied almost entirely on predicting patches of solvent-exposed residues. it was followed by discotope [], which, in addition to solvent accessibility, considered amino acid statistics and spatial information to predict conformational b-cell epitopes. an independent evaluation of these two […]

[…] predicted based on the artificial neural network algorithm (windows size 14, threshold 0.51). the conformational epitopes were selected based on the high-score outcomes of seppa v2.0, ellipro, and discotope v2.0 (threshold: -3.7) online servers. , the protein sequence of local eg14-3-3 was aligned with five ncbi’s complete sequences of other reported eg14-3-3 isolate (genbank accessions: […]
