HIV sequence database


Epitope Location Finder

Purpose: search a submitted protein sequence for (1) known epitopes from our immunology databases, (2) epitopes predicted by consensus binding motifs, and (3) epitopes predicted by the IEDB binding algorithm. For details see ELF Explanation.

Paste protein sequence
[Sample Input]
<50 amino acids, raw format
Show known epitopes from CTL and T-Helper databases
Find potential epitopes based on anchor residues
based on IEDB binding predictions   Show best binder(s) per MHC
Show below percentile rank (1-100) per MHC
MHC(s) Upload
Choose ones from lists below (Use control-click for multiple selection)
By genotype
By serotype
E-mail result Predictions are slow. For more than a few HLAs/MHCs, we recommend e-mailed result.
