    Background: T cell epitope prediction tools and associated vaccine design algorithms have accelerated the development of vaccines for humans. Predictive tools for swine and other food animals are not as well developed, primarily because the data required to develop the tools are lacking. Here,...

    PY-nuclear localization signals contain three binding regions that are not closely related in sequence and are energetically quasi-independent. These modular epitopes can contribute differently to the total binding energy in different signals, to tune their affinity for binding to the carrier...

    The sequence TAVSPTTLR is a conserved and linear neutralizing epitope on the glycoprotein E2 of classical swine fever virus. In this study, TAVSPTTLR-directed antibodies, induced either by virions or by an epitope-focused immunogen, were characterized. The results revealed that despite the same...

    Motivation: The DNA binding specificity of a transcription factor (TF) is typically represented using a position weight matrix model, which implicitly assumes that individual bases in a TF binding site contribute independently to the binding affinity, an assumption that does not always hold. For...

    Motivation: The sequence specificity of DNA-binding proteins is typically represented as a position weight matrix in which each base position contributes independently to relative affinity. Assessment of the accuracy and broad applicability of this representation has been limited by the lack of...

    Background: Predicting which molecules can bind to a given binding site of a protein with known 3D structure is important to decipher the protein function, and useful in drug design. A classical assumption in structural biology is that proteins with similar 3D structures have related molecular...

    Background: HLA-C locus products are poorly understood in part due to their low expression at the cell surface. Recent data indicate that these molecules serve as major restriction elements for human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) cytotoxic T lymphocyte (CTL) epitopes. We report here a...

    Identification of the most relevant epitopes is the initial challenge of peptide-based vaccine design. Chimeric conserved epitopes of the Group A Streptococcus (GAS) M-protein were used in the development of an anti-GAS vaccine candidate. Previously, these epitopes have incorporated a GCN4...

    Motivation: Mass spectrometry-based protein profiling has become a key technology in biomedical research and biomarker discovery. Sample preparation strategies that reduce the complexity of tryptic digests by immunoaffinity substantially increase throughput and sensitivity in proteomic mass...

    Experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis induced with myelin proteins in DA and LEW.1AV1 rats is a model of multiple sclerosis (MS). It reproduces major aspects of this detrimental disease of the central nervous system. MS is associated with theHLA-DRB1*1501,DRB5*0101, andDQB1*0602haplotype. DA...
