MHC Binders & T epitope Prediction Methods:-

    This is a comprehensive method for prediction of MHC binding peptides or CTL epitopes of 67 MHC alleles.The prediction for 30 alleles is based on the hybrid appoarch of Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) and Quantitative Matrices (QM). The prediction for rest 37 MHC alleles is based on the quantiatative matrices.The predicted MHC binders are filtered to potential CTL epitopes by using Proteasomal matrices.

    The ProPred-I is an on-line service for identifying the MHC Class-I binding regions in antigens. It implements matrices for 47 MHC Class-I alleles,proteasomal and immunoproteasomal models. The main aim of this server is to help users in identifying the promiscuous regions.

    The method predict 8-mer, 9-mer, or 10-mer peptides based on a predicted half-time of dissociation to HLA class I molecules. The analysis is based on coefficient tables deduced from the published literature by Dr. Kenneth Parker.

    MAPPP (MHC-I Antigenic Peptide Processing Prediction) will predict possible antigenic peptides to be processed and finally presented on the cell surfaces. It aides the prediction of immunodominant T-cell epitopes.

    The methods allows you to find out theligation strength to a defined HLA type for a sequence of aminoacids. The algorithmus used are based on the book "MHC Ligands and Peptide Motifs" by H.G.Rammensee, J.Bachmann and S.Stevanovic. The probability of being processed and presented is given in order to predict T-cell epitopes.

    This program ranks all possible peptides from an input protein sequence/s by their similarity to a set of peptides known to bind to a given MHC molecule. Similarity is scored using a Position Specific Scoring Matrix (PSSM) built from a collection of aligned peptides known to bind to that MHC molecule.

    This is a structure-based algorithm for prediction of MHC class I epitopes .

    .The server will predict mutated promiciuous and gigh affinity mutated MHC class-I binding peptides in any antigenic protein. The prediction is based upon quantitative matrices derived by extracting the data from MHCBN database. The server can run prediction for 47 MHC class I alleles.

    The server will predict MHC Class-II binding regions in an antigen sequence, using quantitative matrices derived from published literature by Sturniolo et. al., 1999. The server will assist in locating promiscuous binding regions that are useful in selecting vaccine candidates.

    The server predict the MHC class II restricted T cell epitopes . The prediction is based on the quantitative matrices.

    Predict is the interface for prediction of peptide binding to Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC) molecule. This interface uses the artificial neural network models, hidden markov's model or motifs for predictions of peptide binders to various MHC models (system or user-created).The demo version of this server is only present.

  • This is a software for the prediction of MHC calss II restricted promiscuous T cell epitopes or vaccine candidates.The prediction is based on the virtual matrices derived by Sturniolo et. al., 1999.

    The prediction of T cell epitopes is based on MHC binding motif density and AMPHI algorithm.
