ORF10: Molecular Insights into the Contagious Nature of Pandemic Novel Coronavirus 2019-nCoV

This article stems from the author's observations that ORF10, a protein with no sequence and structural conservation, provides with a high number of potentially immunogenic, promiscuous epitopes. With high degree of epitope conservation across CTL and HTL epitopes of ORF10, its existence in the 2019-nCoV genome is largely seen as particularly contributing to the highly contagious nature of this virus.
