This 18-residue peptide from myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG) is a fragment of the pathogenic epitope MOG35–55 that activates MOG-specific encephalitogenic CD8+ T cells. It is a sequence from the panel of highly purified peptides of varying lengths, which span the entire length of pMOG35–55
