This peptide is the 311 to 325 amino acid fragment of the influenza virus nucleoprotein (NP). This true MHC class II restricted epitope from influenza virus is used to study the host immune response during infection. This peptide caused the strongest production of interferon-γ (IFN-γ) in intracellular cytokine determination. It does not stimulate CD8 T cells in mice.
