Table 1 Contents of CED database entries

From: CED: a conformational epitope database

Entry Field Description
Conformational epitope ID Unique identification of the epitope used in CED database.
Constitution and location Residues that constitute the epitope and their locations.
Epitope immunoproperty Immunological property of the epitope. For example, any epitope will be considered as neutralizing if the activity of its source antigen is blocked when binding to its corresponding antibody.
Corresponding antibody Antibody that recognizes and binds this conformational epitope.
Experimental method Experiment techniques used to identify this epitope, e.g. NMR.
Source antigen The name of the antigen on which the conformational epitope exists.
Sequence of source antigen Sequence ID of the source antigen in primary sequence databases such as SwissProt and GenBank; hyperlinked.
Structure of source antigen PDB ID of the source antigen; hyperlinked
Structure of Ag-Ab complex PDB ID of the source antigen-antibody complex; hyperlinked.
Chemoproperty of source antigen Chemical property of source antigen. If the source antigen is an enzyme, it is hyperlinked to KEGG enzyme.
Publication reference PubMed ID of article that report this epitope; hyperlinked.
Comments Miscellaneous information of the epitope. It is often about the location difference between the reference and the sequence database.
