Autoantigen contained within the endomysium is tissue transglutaminase (tTG).
Another study showed that DGR dogs treated with bortezomib, a proteasome inhibitor, presented greater uniformity of fiber diameter and decreased lymphocyte invasion, suggesting attenuation of the inflammatory process and a reduction of t connective tissue deposit in the endomysium and perimysium of the muscle fibers.

The tissue trans glutaminase (TTG) antibody test and endomysial antibodies (TTG IgA-0.30(0-10), TTG IgG-0.9(-010); endomysium IgA) were negative.
All serological testing must be performed while the child is on a gluten-containing diet, or the antibodies to tissue transglutaminase or endomysium may not be elevated, resulting in a false negative reading.
Twelve terms encompassing structures often called fascia have been proposed [9]: dense connective tissue, areolar connective tissue, deep fascia, superficial fascia, interosseous membranes, intermuscular septae, epimysium, perimysium, endomysium, periosteum, neurovascular tract, and intra- and extramuscular aponeuroses.
At 18.8 cm CVRL, bundles of cardiac muscle cells were observed which were encircled by a layer of loose connective tissue, that is, perimysium, and the individual muscle fibers was surrounded by a thin layer of connective tissue as endomysium in group III (Figure 7).
