Novel Approaches for the Discovery of Allergenic Components in Gluten
22 Feb 2012

Upon ingestion, some gluten proteins are not completely metabolized by the body, leaving small undigested peptides that are considered a trigger for the immune response in the small intestine of those who suffer with Celiac Disease. A novel approach will be discussed for the discovery and identification of the physiologically relevant peptides. Various HPLC and MS methodologies will be discussed.
