Microbial proteomics approach for synthetic vaccine development from Taenia solium


Gomase V.S. and Chitlange N.R.

Taenia solium, also called the pork tapeworm causes cysticercosis in humans. Peptide fragments of antigen protein can be used to select nonamers for use in rational vaccine design and to increase the understanding of roles of the immune system in parasitic diseases. Analysis shows MHC class II binding peptides of antigen protein from Taenia solium are important determinant for protection of host form parasitic infection. In this assay, we used PSSM and SVM algorithms for antigen design and predicted the binding affinity of antigen protein having 389 amino acids, which shows 381 nonamers. Binding ability prediction of antigen peptides to major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I & II molecules is important in vaccine development from Taenia solium.
