  1. The 15-mer peptides that were recognized by the volunteers (Table 3) were analysed by NetMHC web-based software to predict potential high affinity HLA binding by minimal CD8+ T cell epitopes within each 15-mer. Each minimal epitope was specific for a known HLA allele within each supertype. Those minimal epitopes with the strongest binding affinities for the HLA supertype of each volunteer were selected. The Table shows the minimal epitopes in bold. Two different HLA-restricted epitopes were predicted with peptide 14.
