Strain Card

The is the strain card and all its information available in our database. Thhe information includes the result of experiemtnal epitope mapping and prediction from various algorithms. Experimental epitopes were mapped from IEDB repository were B cell, T cell and MHC binders. The prediction tools including B cell epitope (LBtope), MHC class I binding alleles (Propred1), MHC class II binding alleles (Propred), CTL epitope (CTLpred), HLA alleles (nHLApred), interferon-gamma inducing potential (IFNepitope), Interleukin-4 inducing capacity (IL4pred).
DescriptionThis strain was isolated from a human skin biopsy in Brazil, and passaged in nude mice and armadillos. The bacterium is a close relative of M. tuberculosis. However, compared to the latter, the genome of M. leprae is smaller due to reductive genome evolution.
