Structural Analysis of the Synthetic Duffy Binding Protein (DBP) Antigen DEKnull Relevant for Plasmodium vivax Malaria Vaccine Design
(A) Graphical representation of DiscoTope B-cell epitope scores for Sal1 DBP-II (blue line) and DEKnull (red line). Prediction threshold is shown in green. DEK residues are located at amino acids 339–348 and shown above the corresponding location in the graph. (B) Two views of Sal1 DBP-II predicted epitopes mapped onto crystal structure. (C) Two views of DEKnull predicted epitopes mapped onto crystal structure.
