Key Receptor Identified for Celiac Disease

Researchers have discovered a key receptor in the intestine that can trigger celiac disease.
Researchers have discovered a key receptor in the intestine that can trigger celiac disease. Studies have shown that gliadin, the toxic component of gluten for celiac patients, binds to a receptor called CXCR3. With further research on this newly found receptor, researchers hope to find a cure to celiac disease and look to apply these findings to other autoimmune diseases like Type I diabetes and multiple sclerosis.
