It contains a nucleotide-binding oligomerisation domain 2/caspase recruitment domains 15 (NOD2/CARD15) gene mutations, which are strongly associated with the increased risk of developing CD, as confirmed by several research groups [4-9].
Regarding potential connections between v-ATPase and Prxs, the pH-regulated oligomerization and chaperone activity of a Schistosoma mansoni Prx in vitro [74] is certainly intriguing but the occurrence of Prx oligomerisation at acidic pH is currently unknown in vivo.
Recent reports show that MITOL ubiquitinates mitochondrial Mfn2 (but not ER Mfn2) and causes its oligomerisation but not proteasomal degradation.
Although the plaques are found extracellularly, it is thought that production, oligomerisation, and accumulation of A[beta] occur within neuronal processes with the possibility that the incorporation of aggregates into plaques occurs after the neurites are dissolved [36].
Other wellcharacterised families of PRRs in humans are the Toll-like receptors (TLRs), of which there are at least 11 family members, the nucleotide oligomerisation domain-like receptors (NLRs) consisting of 22 family members, and the abundant cytosolic microbial and viral DNA sensors.
