Antigenic Determinant Prediction

Antigenic determinant: It is a special chemical group with a certain composition and structure on the surface or other parts of an antigenic substance molecule that can specifically bind to its corresponding antibody or sensitized lymphocyte. The antigenic determinant whose structure has been determined is called an antigenic determinant. Here, CD ComputaBio's bioinformatician can offer you antigenic determinant prediction service to meet the specific needs of different customers.

The selected antigenic determinant should meet the following three points:

1. Hydrophilicity: most antigenic determinants are hydrophilic;
2. On the surface of the structure: most antibodies only bind to the surface of the protein;
3. Flexible: Many known antigenic determinants are in the free movement area.
Therefore, generally speaking, the N-terminal and C-terminal of the protein are good antigenic determinant regions.

Overall solutions

CD ComputaBio calculates the surface accessibility, hydrophilicity and flexibility of each amino acid to roughly calculate the antigenic determinant area. The antigenic determinant area should integrate the above three characteristics. The antigenic determinant prediction tool used by CD ComputaBio includes the following five algorithms:

  • Chou & Fasman Beta-Turn Prediction
  • Emini Surface Accessibility Prediction
  • Karplus & Schulz Flexibility Prediction
  • Kolaskar & Tongaonkar Antigenicity
  • Parker Hydrophilicity Prediction.
