Natural variants of γ-II (glia-γ30; IQPQQPAQ) epitope in expressed γ-gliadins of T.aestivum. This epitope is located in the C-terminal part of γ-gliadins (domain V). % = fraction of total number of γ-gliadins transcripts. Glutamine residues that are a primary targets for the enzyme tissue transglutaminase are to depicted in bold (Q) in QxP target sites whereas moderate target sites are depicted in italics, (Q) [13,14]. Cleavage sites: R, K in bold, trypsin; cleavage occurs at the right side (C-terminal direction) of the marked amino acid.
