Abstract

The value of predictive algorithms for identifying CD8+ T (T(CD8+))-cell epitopes has not been adequately tested experimentally. Here we demonstrate that conventional bioinformatic methods predict the vast majority of T(CD8+)-cell epitopes derived from vaccinia virus WR strain (VACV-WR) in the H-2(b) mouse model. This approach reveals the breadth of T-cell responses to vaccinia, a widely studied murine viral infection model, and may provide a tool for developing comprehensive antigenic maps of any complex pathogen.
