RE: Gladin antibody

From:Nick Bullough

The thing you are looking for is gliadin.

Autoantibodies are raised against gliadin in coeliac disease and you can do
immunofluorescence against the patient serum. This is often done in
immunology for the diagnosis of coeliac disease (forgive if I'm not too
clear, it's a good few years since I did any immunology!).

I'm not sure if there are any antibodies against gliadin available
commercially, you may want to check on some of the antibody search sites.

Best regards,

Looking for "gladin"(?) antibody? Used for celiac disease but can also be
used for (nv)CJD? Have I got the name right? Is there another name? I can't
seem to find it in any of my it in any of my catalogues. Thanks in advance.
