Investigation of immunogenic properties of Hemolin from silkworm, Bombyx mori as carrier protein: an immunoinformatic approach

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5934409
PMID: 29725106
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-25374-z

[…] r B-cell epitopes FBCPred is a novel method developed for prediction of B-cell epitopes with flexible length. B-cell discontinuous epitopes prediction of the hemolin was done by ElliPro ( ElliPro provides the score to each output epitope which described as PI (Protrusion Index) value averaged over each epitope residue. For each epitope residues, the PI value is calc […]

Discrimination Between Human Leukocyte Antigen Class I Bound and Co Purified HIV Derived Peptides in Immunopeptidomics Workflows

Front Immunol
PMCID: 5946011
PMID: 29780384
DOI: 10.3389/fimmu.2018.00912

[…] ettings for MHC class I ligands with 1–5 clusters (). For comparison to mass spectrometry-acquired data, known peptide ligands for HLA class I alleles were extracted from the Immune Epitope Database (IEDB). The Los Alamos National Laboratory HIV database QuickAlign Tool was used to map the location of HIV-1-derived peptides in the HIV-1 genome. Graphs were created using GraphPad Prism 7 software ( […]
