Class Documentation:
Epitope Source refers to the source of an epitope. In most of the cases it refers to the Antigen. Antigens are molecules that induce an immune response through the activation of antigen specific B lymphocytes and/or T lymphocytes. Virtually any molecular structure may provoke an immune response, e.g. proteins, carbohydrates, DNA, lipids, etc.
