Tomar NR, Marla SS, Chandra R, Kumar R, Kumar A., In silico epitope rabies virus vaccine, Online J Bioinform.atics, 12(1):46-56, 2011. An epitope from position 228-236 (T-228) was identified as a novel T cell epitope revealing good MHC class I binding, processing and conservation in known rabies viruses. The findings suggest that it may be possible to generate a synthetic peptide vaccine against rabies but further research on G protein is required, including a search for additional linear epitopes.


Key words: Epitope vaccine, T cell epitopes, in-silico, rabies.
