In addition to native PGL-I, IgM levels can be measured by means of a synthetic mimotope
: a natural disaccharide linked to bovine serum albumin (ND-OBSA) [15-17].
analyzed the therapeutic effect of DCs expressing a CD166 cross-reactive mimotope
of the GD2 ganglioside 47-LDA in lymphodepleted NXS2 NB tumor-bearing syngeneic mice.
• Antibody Epitope Mapping Service - Mimotope
Variation Analysis (MVA) based Epitope Mapping
The results of this study advance the generation of reliable and high-yield mimotope
collections of HIV epitopes.
Project coordinator from Austrian company Affiris Dr Frank Mattner, said this was the result of previous human-trialled vaccines: "Some of the patients developed an auto-immune disease." He said Mimovax would use a "mimotope
americana component previously shown to be an allergenic molecule were used to identify the MAb-bound mimotope
and its phylogenic distribution.
Identification of mimotope
peptides which bind to the mycotoxin deoxynivalenol-specific monoclonal antibody.
All sixty peptide sequences were analysed in mimotope
database (MimoDB 2.0) to check if the peptide sequences identified in this study have any other targets (32) and SAROTUP software (target unrelated peptide scanner) to check presence of any target unrelated peptides (33).
Variation Analysis (MVA) technology gives a detailed description of epitopes and mimotopes
and has several advantages over other technologies.
