Epitope Mapping of a Protein Using the Geysen (PEPSCAN) Procedure

Immunity to many diseases is dependent on the ability of the host’s antibodies (Ab) to recognize foreign antigens (Ag), such as surface proteins or toxins, and bind them tightly and specifically. This binding is an important aspect of the immune response, and it is often required for subsequent immune processes that ultimately result in re-establishment of a disease-free state.
