a Neighbour-joining analysis of the phylogenetic relationship of A0A293MVU8_ORNER (OePK4, red dot) and orthologous proteins. Uniprot entry names are shown: IXORI, Ixodes ricinus; IXOSC, I. scapularis; ORNER, Ornithodoros erraticus; ORNMO, O. moubata; ORNTU, O. turicata. Evolutionary distances were computed using the Poisson correction method. Branch support values (10,000 bootstraps) for the nodes are indicated. b Linear B-cell epitope predictions for OePK4. The sequence of the protein is represented in triplicate showing the ABCpred (yellow), BCEpred (blue) and BepiPred-2.0 (green) predictions. The amino acids in epitopes predicted by at least two algorithms are highlighted in boxes. The signal peptide is depicted in red
