Nasal immunization of mice with peptide having a cross-neutralization epitope on minor capsid protein L2 of human papillomavirus type 16 elicit systemic and mucosal antibodies.


A common cross-neutralization epitope for human papillomavirus types 6 and 16 (HPV 6 and 16) is present in the region of amino acids (aa) 108-120 of HPV-16 minor capsid protein, L2. We nasally immunized Balb/c mice with a synthetic peptide with the 13 aa HPV 16 L2 sequence, and examined the antibodies elicited. ELISA showed that the immunization induced… (More)
