Identification of an HLA-A*02 restricted immunogenic peptide derived from the cancer testis antigen HOM-MEL-40/SSX2.


HOM-MEL-40/SSX2 is a SEREX-defined cancer testis antigen with frequent expression in various human neoplasms. To search for HLA-A*0201 restricted peptides that induce HOM-MEL-40/SSX2-specific CD8+ responses in breast cancer patients, we used the SYFPEITHI algorithm to identify three HOM-MEL-40/SSX2-derived nonamers with high binding affinity for HLA-A*0201… (More)
