  1. aPercentile score vary in allele specific manner. The lower the score better is the binding specificity [46]. The range of scores was obtained by setting cut off. bProteosomal cleavage score is the average of two kinds of scores: constitutively expressed type and INF-γ induced type. cAntigenic score was computed using Doytchinova and Flower's (2007) method [47]
  2. Three score criteria were followed to screen the epitopes: MHC class I binding score, proteosomal cleavage score and antigenicity score. Association of HLA alleles for each epitope was determined by a cut off for percentile rank value ≤ 20.0. Epitopes were further checked for their efficacy in interactions at the peptide binding groove (see below)
