Peptide–MHC Class I Tetramers Can Fail To Detect Relevant Functional T Cell Clonotypes and Underestimate Antigen Reactive T Cell Populations

PMCID: 5857646
PMID: 29483360
DOI: 10.4049/jimmunol.1700242

[…] f patient MM909.24 were sequenced, and all TCRs used for analyses. Public TCRs were assigned using a curated database of TCR sequences with known Ag specificity (). TCR sequences are available at the VDJdb database (): https://github.com/antigenomics/vdjdb-db/issues/243. […]


Computational Strategies for Dissecting the High Dimensional Complexity of Adaptive Immune Repertoires

Front Immunol
PMCID: 5826328
PMID: 29515569
DOI: 10.3389/fimmu.2018.00224

[…] machine learning but also a problem for network-based approaches, where one wishes to map antigen-specific information onto generated networks (, ). To address this issue for T-cells, Shugay et al. (VDJDB) and Tickotsky et al. (McPAS-TCR) have built dedicated and curated databases. VDJDB gathers >20,000 unique TCR sequences from different species associated with their epitope (>200) and MHC conte […]


The 2018 Nucleic Acids Research database issue and the online molecular biology database collection

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 5753253
PMID: 29316735
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gkx1235

[…] ge through a transmembrane protein. Certain protein classes or families justify their own bespoke databases through medical or biological importance. T-cell receptors are served in this issue by both VDJdb (), focussing on receptor sequences of known specificity, and STCRDab () which collects and curates structural information, linking to and allowing searches against a wide variety of structural, […]
