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).
DescriptionMycobacterium tuberculosis KZN R5065 is a clinical XDR (extensively-drug resistant) strain from the KwaZulu-Natal region in South Africa. It is resistant to isoniazid, rifampicin, streptomycin, kanamycin and ofloxacin.
