Development of Global Consensus of Dengue Virus Envelope Glycoprotein for Epitopes Based Vaccine Design
Dengue virus (DENV) is the member of Flaviviridae and causative agent of Dengue Haemorrhagic Fever and
Dengue Shock Syndrome. Every year, around 70% of the world population is at risk, due to epidemic episodes
orchestrated by one or more of its serotypes. So, a tetravalent DENV vaccine is needed which may induce the immune
response against all four DENV serotypes. In this study, B-cell and T-cell epitopes have been predicted from the DENV
envelope glycoprotein (Eg) using a consensus based approach in complement with the physico-chemical property (PCP)
conservancy analysis. Through DENV-Eg analysis, a total of 7 PCP conserved, water soluble, in vitro and in vivo stable
epitopes were predicted which may induce the B-cell and T-cell mediated anti-viral immune response.
Keywords: Dengue virus, consensus sequence, Envelope glycoprotein, phylogenetic analysis, in silico design.
