• Hence, screening for the identification of the topographical repertoire of B-cell epitopes that elicit cross-protective immune response seems essential in the engineering of a superior PspA-based vaccine. (frontiersin.org)
  • Herein, we revisit epitope identification in PspA and the utility of hybridoma technology in directing the identification of protective epitope regions of PspA that can be used in vaccine research. (frontiersin.org)
  • Exceptions are linear epitopes , which are determined by the amino acid sequence (the primary structure ) rather than by the 3D shape ( tertiary structure ) of a protein. (thefullwiki.org)
  • When incorporated into the protein of interest, epitope tags make protein detection and identification very robust and easy. (biolegend.com)
  • citation needed] Epitopes can be mapped using protein microarrays, and with the ELISPOT or ELISA techniques. (wikipedia.org)
  • Common epitopes used for this purpose are Myc-tag, HA-tag, FLAG-tag, GST-tag, 6xHis and OLLAS. (wikipedia.org)
  • Which epitope tags have been used in flies? (bio.net)
  • BioLegend's Posi-Tag Epitope Tag Protein can be utilized as a positive control in Western blotting experiments where many epitope tags are commonly used. (biolegend.com)
