The human herpesvirus 8 (HHV-8) is a human gamma2-herpesvirus that is implicated in the development of Kaposi's sarcoma (KS), primary effusion lymphoma and Castelman's disease. Since the responses of cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL) play a key role in the control of herpesvirus infection, it is important to identify and to characterize the CTL target epitopes of HHV-8 viral antigens. In this study, using peptide-binding motifs, we selected potential human leucocyte antigen (HLA)-A2-binding… CONTINUE READING
