The use of binding-prediction models to identify M. bovis-specific antigenic peptides for screening assays in bovine tuberculosis.

Abstract

The identification of MHC class II-restricted antigenic peptides for inclusion into vaccines and/or as diagnostic test reagents for mycobacterial infections remains a high research priority. To expedite discovery of such peptides, numerous bioinformatic tools have been developed to predict whether a given peptide is likely to form a stable binding… (More)
