A bioinformatics tool for epitope-based vaccine design that accounts for human ethnic diversity: Application to emerging infectious diseases..

Abstract Background: Peptide vaccination based on multiple T-cell epitopes can be used to target well-defined ethnic populations. Because the response to T-cell epitopes is restricted by HLA proteins, the HLA specificity of T-cell epitopes becomes a…

Biochemical Markers in Osteoarthritis..

Abstract: Osteoarthritis (OA) is a chronic disease with a long silent period. The hallmarks of osteoarthritis (OA) include cartilage loss that leads to joint destruction and severe impairment of mobility. Involvement of subchondral bone and synovial…

Allele Frequencies Net Database: Improvements for storage of individual genotypes and analysis of existing data.

The Allele Frequencies Net Database (AFND) is a freely accessible database which stores population frequencies for alleles or genes of the immune system in worldwide populations. Herein we introduce two new tools. We have defined new…

A web resource for mining HLA associations with adverse drug reactions: HLA-ADR.

Human leukocyte antigens (HLA) are an important family of genes involved in the immune system. Their primary function is to allow the host immune system to be able to distinguish between self and non-self peptides—e.g. derived…

Analysis of Polymorphisms in the MATN3 and DOT1L Genes and CTX-II Urinary Levels in Patients with Knee Osteoarthritis in a Northeast Mexican-Mestizo Population..

Aims: To investigate the possible roles of the single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) MATN3 (rs77245812) and DOT1L (rs12982744) with susceptibility to knee osteoarthritis (KOA) among mestizos from the northeast region of Mexico. In addition, we analyzed the…
