Gluten proteins, the culprits in celiac disease (CD), show striking similarities in primary structure with human salivary proline-rich proteins (PRPs). Both are enriched in proline and glutamine residues that often occur consecutively in their sequences. We investigated potential differences in the spectrum of salivary PRPs in health and CD.

Abstract

Gluten proteins, the culprits in celiac disease (CD), show striking similarities in primary structure with human salivary proline-rich proteins (PRPs). Both are enriched in proline and glutamine residues that often occur consecutively in their sequences. We investigated potential differences in the spectrum of salivary PRPs in health and CD.
