Plant and human aquaporins: pathogenesis from gut to brain

Plant and human aquaporins: pathogenesis from gut to brain

Corn, soybean, spinach leaf, and tomato aquaporins have been shown to share homology with human aquaporin-4, which is abundantly expressed by brain astrocytic endfeet. Thus, antibodies formed against the dietary aquaporins may potentially cross-react with brain...

Reaction of Food‐Specific Antibodies with Different Tissue Antigens

Wheat, milk, peanuts, soy, egg and corn are among the most major sources of immunoreactive proteins. The first goal of this study was to examine the reactivity of food specific antibodies with human tissue antigens. Affinity‐purified rabbit anti‐food antibodies were...
