Molecular mimicry and ankylosing spondylitis: possible role of a novel sequence in pullulanase of Klebsiella pneumoniae.

FEBS Lett. 1995 Aug 7;369(2):243-8.
PubMed Citation Journal Link

Molecular mimicry has been shown between two sequences of Klebsiella pneumoniae pulD secretion protein (DRDE) with HLA-B27 (DRED) and pulA (pullulanase) enzyme (Gly-X-Pro) with types I, III ...body levels to pulA and types I and IV collagen were observed in AS patients compared to controls (P < 0.001).
