An antigen must contain at least 2 epitopes.

I don't see why. An antibody typically binds two epitopes, but they can and usually do come from different antigen molecules. AxelBoldt 07:19, 20 December 2005 (UTC)

I agree. JFW | T@lk 08:14, 20 December 2005 (UTC)

Totally correct Shaq141 22:02, 29 March 2006 (UTC)

Very true antigenic determinants can be merged with epitope.

I agree about the merging of the two pages as well. That's how they also thought us in class, in any case. (11-13-2007)
