Verma SK, Singh Yadav SP, Kumar A., In silico prediction of potential T cell antigenic determinants from proteome of H1N2 swine influenza A virus, Onl J Bioinform., 21(2): 106-113, 2020. Swine influenza (H1N2) is a highly contagious respiratory pathogen which also infects humans. We describe screening for peptides which could be used for vaccines for patients diagnosed with influenza A virus (H1N2). Propred logarithms were used to predict T cell epitopes from hemagglutinin, neuraminidase, polymerase, polymerase basic, nonstructural and nucleocapsid proteins of influenza virus (A/Sw/It/116114/2010) (H1N2). We found 21 T epitopes for HLA class I and 20 for HLA class II molecules binding with maximum number of HLA alleles. By Propred I and Propred threshold was 4% high binding affinity peptides. We find that T cell epitopes may be a useful diagnostic reagent for T-cell responses and possibly vaccines in swine H1N2 influenza.
