The conversion of protein amide groups to carboxyl groups by deamidation improves solubility and other physical properties of proteins under mildly acidic conditions.
Deamidation of gliadin epitopes by transglutaminase enables them to be presented with high affinity by antigen-presenting cells to helper T cells and then B cells, resulting in antibody production against gliadin, transglutaminase 2, and gliadin-transglutaminase complex.
This geometry suggests the presence of charge-modified species that is, those originating from deamidation, sulfation, acetylation, or glycosylation or glycation, as theoretically predicted and experimentally verified by Pietrogrande et al.
Deamidation of wheat gliadin by tissue transglutaminase promotes its binding to HLA-DQ2 and its recognition by gut T cells, suggesting a novel mechanism in celiac disease.
Irreversible protein denaturation can also be explained as resulting from deamidation of aspartic acid (As) and glycine (Gln) residues, cleavage of peptide bonds at As residues, destruction of cysteine (Cys) and cystine residues, and aggregation [22, 26].
