Natural variants of the DQ2γI epitope, including the 9mer core motif and four flanking amino acid positions on both sides of the core, found among genomic sequences of T. monococcum subspec. monococcum (A^{b} genome), Ae. speltoides var. speltoides (Sgenome) and Ae. tauschii (Dgenome) and T. aestivum transcripts (ABD genome). Group = NeighborJoining topology group of the epitope motif (see Figure 2). Glutamine residues that are a primary targets for the enzyme tissue transglutaminase are bold underlined (
