Patent
ioGenetics | Date: 2017-05-17

The present invention provides methods and systems for identifying and classifying epitopes and use of that information to analyze proteins and peptides within proteins, especially potential epitopes, and to use the information to design synthetic peptides and proteins, analyze biopharmaceutical proteins, and diagnose autoimmune conditions. Peptides which are bound in MHC grooves comprise two sets of amino acids: those that face inwards into the groove and determine the binding affinity to the MHC molecule (the groove exposed motifs or GEM) and those which do not interact with the groove but rather are on the obverse side exposed outwardly to the T-cells (the T-cell exposed Motifs or TCEM). The present invention utilizes information related to the identity and physiochemical characteristics of the GEM and TCEM.


This invention relates to the identification of peptide binding to ligands, and in particular to identification of epitopes expressed by microorganisms and by mammalian cells. The present invention provides polypeptides comprising the epitopes, and vaccines, antibodies and diagnostic products that utilize or are developed using the epitopes.

The present invention relates antimicrobial compositions, and in particular to antigen binding proteins comprising one or more domains that provide antimicrobial activity.


This invention relates to the identification of peptide binding to ligands, and in particular to identification of epitopes expressed by microorganisms and by mammalian cells. The present invention provides polypeptides comprising the epitopes, and vaccines, antibodies and diagnostic products that utilize or are developed using the epitopes.


The present invention provides a bioinformatic methodology for prediction of peptidase cleavage sites based on principal component analysis and based on training sets obtained by experimental protein cleavage. This invention is not limited to training sets derived from CSL approaches, nor to any other experimental determination of cleavage site. Undoubtedly there will be new approaches to developed for experimental measurement of cleavage sites and these too may be the source of training sources for the present invention.
