Abstract
Therapeutic vaccines treat a disease or condition by inducing or strengthening a pre-existing immune response. A chimeric protein comprising the core and surface regions of the hepatitis B virus (HBV) envelope protein was designed as a therapeutic vaccine. The premise was that if the HBV surface protein is fused with the core protein of the viral envelope, it can produce both cellular and humoral immune response. NNPREDICT and PSIPRED programs were used to predict the secondary structure elements of the protein. 3D-JIGSAW was used to predict the tertiary structure of the protein. The tertiary structure shows α-helices form a helical bundle domain and the β-strands form a separate domain. The provided data can be used to explain binding to antibodies found on the surface of B-cells, class II MHC molecules and T-cell receptors (TCR).
