Abstract:The interferon (IFN)-γ response to peptides can be a useful diagnostic marker of
Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) latent infection. We identified promiscuous and
potentially protective CD4+ T-cell epitopes from the most conserved
regions of MTB antigenic proteins by scanning the MTB antigenic proteins GroEL2,
phosphate-binding protein 1 precursor and 19 kDa antigen with the TEPITOPE algorithm.
Seven peptide sequences predicted to bind to multiple human leukocyte antigen
(HLA)-DR molecules were synthesised and …
