Figure 8

The 3D structures of the linear B-cell epitope and non B-cell epitope. The 3D structures can distinguish when considering the top propensity of Alpha-helix indices for alpha-proteins with AAindex ID: GEIM800102 (a) The structures of linear B-cell epitope are mainly composed of helixes (blue). (b) But the structures of non B-cell epitopes contain beta-sheets (red, at the left) also to helixes (blue, at the right).
