Immunological similarities between cytosolic and particulate tissue transglutaminase

FEBS Letters
C R KnightM Griffin

Abstract

At the present time it is uncertain whether or not the cytosolic and particulate forms of tissue transglutaminase are distinct and discrete enzymes. In this study a number of physical and immunological similarities between the two forms are demonstrated, indicating that they share some common epitopes, although their native confirmations may differ.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
