Is It Really Autoimmunity? | El Paso, TX. | Part I

The western diet is associated with inflammation, and inflammation is central to autoimmunity and autoimmune diseases. Keeping the inflammation down can help in lengthening time between attacks. What to eat and what not to eat are the common questions. In order to quiet  inflammation triggers, educate ourselves and live a normal life is the focus.

autoimmunity el paso tx.What Biological Processes May Make Self Into Non‐Self?

  • Post‐translationalmodificationofProtein
    – Glycation of protein
    – Protein Oxidation
    – Amino Acid Conjugation of Protein (Citrullinated Protein/AntiCCP and RA)
  • ProteinSynthesisErrors
  • DNA and RNA Changes
    – Radiation Induced Crosslinking of DNA
    – Oxidation of DNA
    – Copy Errors not corrected by DNA repair process – Epigenetic Changes (the methylome)

Where Do Anti‐Cyclic Citrullinated Peptides (AntiCCPs) Come From?

  • Activation of the immune system resulting in increased iNOS production of nitric oxide
  • Arginine residues in proteins can be converted in situ into citrulline with the release of nitric oxide by iNOS
  • The citrulline produced in the protein is now “foreign” and can be recognized by the immune system as such
  • Antibodies can then be produced against this “foreign protein”
