  1. 1In these columns, B indicates that the site lies in the B-cell antigenic regions [18]. G means that it is a potential glycosylation site. T indicates that the site lies in the T-cell antigenic regions [19]. R indicates that it is a receptor-binding site [11]. We use the same numbering strategy as Deem and Pan [18] and start numbering from the amino acids DTLC.
