Based on algorithms of hidrophilicity and flexibility, obtained by the use of the ProtScale software, disposable at the site http:// au.expasy.org/cgi-bin/protscale.pl, seven potentially antigenic peptides were selected from different Schistosoma mansoni proteins: cathepsin B (Sm31), heat shock protein (SmHSP-70), cathodic circulating antigen (CCA) and the polypeptidic sequence of the open reading frame (ORF) of the ET-03 clone. The peptides were produced by chemical synthesis and denominated… CONTINUE READING
