  1. Homology searches were made with the basic local alignment search tool (BLAST) and the dodecamer mimotope sequences as input. The combined results of the following searches were pooled for this table: unlimited search, search limited to H. pylori (taxid: 210), search limited to Mycobacterium tuberculosis typus humanus (taxid: 1773), and search limited to RNA viruses (taxid: 2559587). The limited searches were done due to possible associations of NMOSD with infections by H.pylori [56], M. tuberculosis [57,58,59,60], and Hepatitis viruses (RNA viruses] [61,62,63]. The top Blast Hits on 100 subject sequences were analyzed. As cut-off criteria, only continuous sequences ≥5 amino acids plus ≥1 flanking identical amino acid or positive match were considered
  2. # represent the position of the amino acids in the mimotope or protein sequence
  3. aamino acids found in both sequences are indicated by letters
  4. + = positive match (conservative substitution)
  5. white space = match with zero/negative score
  6. - = gap
