Benchmarking B-cell epitope prediction for vaccine design is meaningful if based on empirical reference data pertaining to cross-reactivities of antipeptide antibodies with native protein antigens; yet it is complicated by such data acquired using antibodies raised against peptide-protein conjugates, as peptide-protein conjugation can differentially suppress antibody responses to peptide epitopes.

More about this publication?
  • Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
