Transport of a neurotoxicant by molecular mimicry: the methylmercury-L-cysteine complex is a substrate for human L-type large neutral amino acid transporter (LAT) 1 and LAT2.
(2) Microbes might also play an important role, probably via molecular mimicry. (2) Globally, 30% of patients with IBDs develop EIMs and the clinical spectrum of these EIMs varies from mild transitory to very severe lesions, sometimes more incapacitating than the intestinal disease itself.
The mechanism identified in the relationship of vaccine-induced ADEM probably is caused by the molecular mimicry between the vaccine epitope and neural antigens with the subsequent activation of cross-reactive immune cells.
Rooney's team then used the theory of molecular mimicry to prove a relationship between the vaccination and the injury.
Some studies concern the transport mechanism of Hg in the body based on the molecular mimicry. Bridges and Zalups [43] define the mechanism of molecular and/or ionic mimicry as the formation of complexes (mainly organo-metal) similar to endogenous biomolecules.
Although the exact etiology is unclear, it is believed that a streptococcal trigger residing in the palatine tonsils might activate T cells in the skin through molecular mimicry. (1) HLA-Cw*0602 homozygosity hasbeen linked to streptococcal-associated psoriasis.
As DrugCendR is now preparing to transition from a preclinical to a clinical-stage company, the company will present details on their Phase I-ready lead compound CEND-1 - a highly innovative molecular mimicry agent that is able to activate a drug transport mechanism specifically in solid tumors.

Based on the analysis of these 198 cases and a case of their own, PD was hypothesized to be an immunologically mediated disease caused by molecular mimicry between TB antigens and host cartilage in genetically predisposed individuals.
Autoantibodies may be produced by molecular mimicry, in which viral proteins possess homologous amino acid sequences with cardiomyocyte proteins (or the virus and the host share the same antigenic determinant or epitope) and the induction of an immune response to the viral antigen thus leads to a cross-reaction with self-antigens (the antibodies produced against the viral antigen bind to or react with antigens of the cardiac muscle cells that share the same antigenic determinant with the viral antigen), resulting in autoimmunity.
