Transcriptome analysis of Solanum melongena L. (eggplant) fruit to identify putative allergens and their epitopes
Complete transcriptome catalogue of brinjal fruit was generated using NGS technology.
Brinjal transcripts showed significant similarity with other plant proteins.
Putative allergen sequences of eggplant matched with 48 different types of existing allergens.
B-cell epitopes were identified using BepiPred linear epitope prediction tool.
