A Shannon entropy analysis of immunoglobulin and T cell receptor.

Abstract

In 1970, before any antigen-bound immunoglobulin structure had been solved, Elvin Kabat proposed that regions of high amino acid diversity would be the antigen binding sites of immunoglobulin (Kabat, 1970). Conversely, sites of low variability were proposed to be structural, framework regions. This variability was defined by Wu and Kabat as the number of… (More)
