A stress protein on their surface is presented, permeability changes results in the entry of gliadin in laminapropria, where its deamidation by an enzyme tissue transglutaminase, allowing its interaction with HLA-DQ2 (or HLA-DQ8) on antigen presenting cell's surface.
To further study these factors, they compared 3-day food diaries collected at ages 9, 12, 18, and 24 months for 146 children with positive tissue transglutaminase autoantibody (tTGA) assays and biopsy-confirmed celiac disease (cases) and 436 tTGA-negative children (controls).
Gelatin, cell-culture media, cells, and an enzyme called transglutaminase are all mixed in and then poured over the PNIPAM structure.
