Figure 9

Variation with CD4 and antibody epitopes of HBVc. a) Two of the best defined CD4 epitopes within HBVc (taken from [31,32]) are shown together with alternative amino acids found at each position. The position of the epitope 50#150;69 is shown in the context of the HBVc three dimensional structure above(in green). The rest of the colour coding is as shown in fig 6. Epitope 147#150;156 is not shown since this region of HBVc was excluded in the crystallographic study. b) The best defined antibody epitopes (taken from [33]) are shown (in green) in the context of the HBVc three dimensional structure above. The rest of the colour coding is as shown in fig 6.
