HPV-16 is the HPV most often linked to cervical carcinoma. E6 of the HPV-16 which expressed early in cancer cells is a target for immune therapeutic methods. In the present study, after fetching the sequence of HPV-16 E6 (accession No: ABC48950) from NCBI databank, by using hydrophilicity, flexibility, accessibility, turns, exposed surface, polarity and antigenic propensity scales, B cell epitopes of the protein were predicted. In addition, MHCPred version 2.0 program was used to predict MHC… Expand

In silico analyzing the molecular interactions of plant-derived inhibitors against E6AP, p53, and c-Myc binding sites of HPV type 16 E6 oncoprotein
TLDR
Docking analysis showed the interaction of these plant-originated inhibitors with E6AP, p53, and Myc binding sites on the E6 oncoprotein which support the normal function of E6 AP, p 53, and myc. Expand
Cloning, Expression and Bioinformatic Analysis of Human Papillomavirus Type 52 L1 Capsid Gene from Indonesian Patient
TLDR
The phylogenetic tree which was developed based on HPV-52 L1 sequence showed that it shared a branch with Asian countries (Philippines and Thailand) and the deduced amino acid sequences of the predicted epitopes that were consistent in all of the programs were 259GTLGDPVPGDLYIQGS274 and 345KKESTYKNE353.

Epitope Mapping of Tobacco Mosaic Virus Capsid Protein: Prediction and Experimental Data from Spot Synthesis
TLDR
This work used spot synthesis to map tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) epitopes in a mice animal model and compared the results with those obtained using immunoinformatic prediction tools to provide a detailed antigenic profile for TMV. Expand
In silico vaccine design against type 1 diabetes based on molecular modeling of coxsackievirus B4 epitopes
TLDR
The results suggest that epitopes and structural features of the protein 2C of coxsackievirus B4 can be predicted and this information could be used to make novel vaccines for control of T1DM. Expand

TLDR
The impact of subtype differences on the seroreactivity of linear antigenic epitopes in envelope glycoprotein of HIV-1 isolates from different geographical locations is described and their reactivity was tested by ELISA. Expand
Functional significance of sequence variation in the E2 gene and the long control region of human papillomavirus type 16.
TLDR
The transcriptional transactivation potentials of the HPV-16 E2 isolates differed only slightly from each other, and the differences seemed to be independent of the taxonomic position of the isolates. Expand
Codon optimized expression of HPV 16 E6 renders target cells susceptible to E6-specific CTL recognition.
TLDR
The results presented in this paper show that use of optimized codons in transfection experiments can improve susceptibility of target cells to E6-specific CTL recognition and lack of detectable protein within a cell does not necessarily indicate the absence of epitope presentation. Expand
The use of bioinformatics for identifying class II-restricted T-cell epitopes.
TLDR
A computer model is described, TEPITOPE, that enables the systematic prediction of promiscuous peptide ligands for a broad range of HLA binding specificity and provides examples of its successful application in the context of oncology, allergy, and infectious and autoimmune diseases. Expand
Characterization of HPV-16 E6 DNA vaccines employing intracellular targeting and intercellular spreading strategies.
TLDR
DNA vaccines employing these intracellular targeting or intercellular spreading strategies targeting HPV-16 E6 are characterized for their ability to generate E6-specific CD8+ T cell immune responses and antitumor effects against an E 6-expressing tumor cell line, TC-1, in C57BL/6 mice. Expand
MHCPred 2.0: an updated quantitative T-cell epitope prediction server.

This article presents MHCPred 2.0, an enhanced version of the online, quantitative T-cell epitope prediction server, which includes a binding model for the human transporter associated with antigen processing (TAP) and a tool for the design of heteroclitic peptides. Expand
Probing the conformational and dynamical effects of O-glycosylation within the immunodominant region of a MUC1 peptide tumor antigen.
TLDR
The results of these studies show that a type I beta-turn conformation is adopted by residues PDTR within the PDTRP region of the unglycosylated MUC1 sequence, and that Tn glycosylation at the central threonine within thePDTRP core epitope region shifts the conformational equilibrium away from the type I Beta- turn conformation and toward a more rigid and extended state.
