From: Cellular responses to Plasmodium falciparum erythrocyte membrane protein-1: use of relatively conserved synthetic peptide pools to determine CD4 T cell responses in malaria-exposed individuals in Benin, West Africa

Figure 1

Three pools of the relatively conserved peptides from PfEMP1. Pool 1 is from the DBLα domain, pool 2 contains two peptides from CIDRα and ten from DBLβ-δ and CIDRβ domains and pool 3 contains conserved peptides from the intracellular EXON 2 domain. The peptides were selected as representative of 15 var gene sequences as described in the Materials and Methods Section. TM stands for transmembrane region.
