Estaquier1992 J. Estaquier, C. Boutillon, J.-C. Ameisen, H. Gras-Masse, J.-P. Lecocq, B. Barbier, A. Dixson, A. Tartar, A. Capron, and C. Auriault. T Helper Cell Epitopes of the Human Immunodeficiency Virus Nef Protein in Rats and Chimpanzees. Mol. Immunol., 29:489-499, 1992. Notes: Helper T-cell epitopes in nef were investigated using five synthetic peptides selected for their amphipathic and $alpha$ helix properties. One of the peptides, 45-59 was very immunogenic, and could induce functional T-cell help it in vivo. PubMed ID: 1373467. Show all entries for this paper.
