The specificity of antibodies raised against a T cell peptide is influenced by peptide amidation.

Abstract

Peptides used for immunization are designed on the basis of combination of B and T cell epitopes. They are sometimes acetylated and amidated in order to mimic the protein insertion of the B cell epitope, but to our knowledge the effect of modifying the N- and C-termini is not clearly identified. In this paper, we have investigated in detail the influence of… (More)
