Figure 1. . . Distribution of scores for the complete set of 3,424 peptides obtained by parsing the West Nile (WN) virus genome into 10 amino-acid long peptides, each overlapping by 9 amino acids, as scored on the EpiMatrix motif for HLA B*07. Peptides with estimated binding potential (EBP) scores >7 and <50 with the HLA B*07 motif are highly likely to bind to HLA B*07 in T2 B7 assays and to stimulate T cells. WN virus peptides with EBP scores between 20 and 50 were considered for study.
