14) Gliadin can serve as a substrate of transglutaminase, which is activated upon injury or inflammation of the small bowel, and in the process becomes cross-linked to transglutaminase, thereby creating a neoantigen, which induces an immune response to the self-protein (transglutaminase).

66] Thus, heparins likely form multiple complexes with PF4, and depending on the nature of this interaction, the allosteric modifications in PF4 leading to a neoantigen formation may also vary.
One proposed explanation is the formation of a metabolite that is either haptogenic or alters an hepatocyte macromolecule to generate a neoantigen [19].

PSA is not a neoantigen or cancer-specific antigen, but rather is expressed by normal, benign hyperplastic, and neoplastic prostatic cells as well other nonprostatic tissues [4].
Profiling the T-cell repertoire is also being widely incorporated into clinical studies to assess the efficacy of treatments specifically designed to induce an immune response to cancer, including checkpoint inhibitors such as anti-CTLA, dendritic cell vaccines, and vaccination with patient-specific tumor-derived neoantigens.
