A consensus epitope prediction approach identifies the breadth of murine T CD8+ -cell responses to vaccinia virus
The value of predictive algorithms for identifying CD8+ T (TCD8+)-cell epitopes has not been adequately tested experimentally. Here we demonstrate that conventional bioinformatic methods predict the vast majority of TCD8+-cell epitopes derived from vaccinia virus WR strain (VACV-WR) in the H-2b mouse model. This approach reveals the breadth of T-cell responses to vaccinia, a widely studied murine viral infection model, and may provide a tool for developing comprehensive antigenic maps of any...[Show more]
