Abstract: A stretch of 16 amino acid residues within the nominal phosphoprotein of rabies virus was shown to carry an immunodominant epitope for class I-and class II-restricted T cells. The nominal phosphoprotein of rabies virus is thought to be heterogeneously phosphorylated at multiple serine and threonine residues. The synthetic peptide that expressed the T-cell epitope contained a single serine residue corresponding to position 196 of the protein. Phosphorylation of this serine within the synthetic peptide caused a …
