Plant Research International, Wageningen UR, PO Box 16, NL 6700 AA Wageningen, The Netherlands
BMC Plant Biol 9:41. 2009..However, not all gluten proteins contain T-cell stimulatory epitopes. Gluten proteins are encoded by multigene loci present on chromosomes 1 and 6 of the three different genomes of hexaploid bread wheat (Triticum aestivum) (AABBDD)...
