A major factor in the virulence of Bacillus anthracis is secretion of protective antigen, lethal and edema toxins. These toxins possess a common cell receptor-binding (B) component but have distinct biochemically active (A) components. We identified In silico T-Cell epitope and its binding affinity with MHC Class II with HLAPred. Ideal epitope peptide antigen, lipophilicity and solvency were determined. We identified 10 protective antigen and 5 lethal factors with best epitopic characteristics. Further studies to predict population coverage of T-cell epitope based on MHC binding data for epitope-based vaccines or diagnostics are required.
