  • The antigen-binding site of the antibody has a unique structure that allows it to bind antigen in a highly specific manner. (nature.com)
  • A multivalent vaccine that presents diverse influenza virus subtype H1 hemagglutinins on its surface induces broadly neutralizing antibodies in an animal model by displaying conserved epitopes at higher density than strain-specific epitopes. (nature.com)
