A number of lines of evidence suggest that transglutaminase 2 (TG2) may be one of the earliest disease-relevant proteins to encounter immunotoxic gluten in the celiac gut. These and other investigations also suggest that the reaction catalyzed by TG2 on dietary gluten peptides is essential for the pathogenesis of celiac disease. If so, several questions are(More)
Transglutaminase 2 (TG2) is a ubiquitously expressed enzyme that catalyzes the posttranslational modification of glutamine residues on protein or peptide substrates. A growing body of literature has implicated aberrantly regulated activity of TG2 in the pathogenesis of various human inflammatory, fibrotic, and other diseases. Taken together with the fact(More)
Current vector-based malaria control strategies are threatened by the rise of biochemical and behavioural resistance in mosquitoes. Researching mosquito traits of immunity and fertility is required to find potential targets for new vector control strategies. The seminal transglutaminase AgTG3 coagulates male Anopheles gambiae seminal fluids, forming a(More)
Dear Editor, Microtubules (MTs) are the major cytoskeletal filaments in living cells. They are highly dynamic structures, and their assembly and disassembly are tightly regulated to achieve specific cellular functions. For example, MTs in the cell body are sufficiently dynamic to permit the cell to quickly rearrange its cytoskeleton for morphogenesis or(More)
Our aim was to develop an exercise protocol using 31P-magnetic resonance spectroscopy (31P-MRS), which can discriminate between malignant hyperthermia-susceptible (MHS) individuals and controls. MRS spectra of the forearm muscles were recorded at rest, during and after a standardized exercise protocol in 10 MHS patients and compared with spectra obtained in(More)
