Figure 5. Alignment of the GPC and NP amino acid sequences of Lassa Josiah, AV, and Nigeria (sequences 1, 2, and 3, respectively). B-cell epitopes [GPC 119-133 (28), GPC 124-176 (28), GPC 364-376 (29), NP 123-127 (31)], T-cell epitopes (17), and the putative GPC cleavage site (30) are doubly underlined. Dots above the GPC sequence mark potential N-linked glycosylation sites. Inserted amino acids are shown above the sequence with the position of insertion indicated by a vertical line.
