Triticeae Glutens - Prolamins and Glutelins - Chemical Behavior
... Gliadins, an example of the prolamins in Triticeae, are separated on the basis of electrophoretic mobility and isoelectric focusing ... α-/β-gliadins - soluble in low percentage alcohols ... γ-gliadins - ancestral form of cysteine rich gliadin with only intrachain disulfide ω-gliadins - soluble in higher percentages of alcohol and acidic acetonitrile ...
Glutenin
... Wheat gluten proteins consist of two major fractions the gliadins and the glutenins ... Gliadins are monomeric proteins that can be separated into four groups, alpha-, beta-, gamma- and omega-gliadins ... Omega- and gamma-gliadins are encoded by genes at the Gli-1 loci located on the short arms of group 1 chromosomes, while alpha and beta-gliadin-encoding genes are located on the short arms of group 6 ...
Gliadin - Metabolism
... Gliadins are known for their role, along with glutenin, in the formation of gluten ... severe form of which is celiac disease) are sensitive to α, β, and γ gliadins ... Those with WD urticaria and Baker's asthma are sensitive to ω-gliadins ...
Gliadin - Types

Triticeae Glutens - Prolamins and Glutelins - Chemical Behavior - As Substrates For Enzymes
... In gliadin the -QQP-, -QVP-, -QLP-, -QYP- tripeptides in the context of favorable adjacent peptides are readily deamidated ... Most proteins have few or no such transglutaminase sites however alpha gliadin has 13 such sites ... Human tissue transglutaminase not only deamidates gliadin, but it also crosslinks itself to gliadin, which has immunological consequences ...
