Following influenza infection or receipt of the influenza vaccine, the body’s immune system develops antibodies that recognize and bind to “antigenic sites,” which are regions found on an influenza virus’ surface proteins. By binding to these antigenic sites, antibodies neutralize flu viruses, which prevents them from causing further infection.
Perhaps the simplest method for the prediction of antigenic determinants is that of Kolaskar and Tongaonkar (1990) , which is based on the occurrence of amino acid residues in experimentally determined epitopes. Prediction of antigen determinants using the method of Kolaskar and Tongaonkar method is available from our antigenic site. The prediction algorithm work as follows:.
