Built structure of 12 kDa ES protein and it’s predicted epitopes. (a) The 3-dimensional structure of the built 12 kDa ES protein model. Purple represents α-helices, yellow represents β-sheets, white represents coils and cyan represents turns. Disulfide bond between Cys31 and Cys34 is shown in red dotted line. (b) The predicted epitopes, represented in different colors as below (Figure 2c) of the T. gondii 12 kDa ES protein. The conserved region Trp-Cys-Gly-Pro-Cys is in stick representation. (c) Summary of the epitope prediction results of the T. gondii 12 kDa ES protein from four sequential and conformational epitope prediction servers and protein binding site prediction results from ProBis.
