General description

Gliadin is a protein found in wheat and other cereals. The T cells recognize the gliadin epitopes and activate the innate immune response similar to the response to pathogens. This response is more intense in coeliac disease wherein the gut-derived T cells produced in response to gliadin induce damage to the small intestine. Therefore, patients affected by coeliac disease or gluten-sensitivity should avoid food that produce gliadin

Gliadin is an important component of wheat gluten. It is composed of single-chain polypeptides and has a molecular weight of 25−100 kDa. It is associated by intramolecular disulfide bonds.


Rabbit Anti-Gliadin shows specificity for native wheat gliadin.


native and heat-treated wheat gliadin


Anti-Gliadin (Wheat) antibody produced in rabbit has been used in immunoblot and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA).

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 15 mM sodium azide

Biochem/physiol Actions

Gliadin is a class of glutamine containing, alcohol soluble proteins separable from wheat and rye glutens known as the prolamins. These proteins are associated with the harmful effects of celiac disease and gluten sensitive enteropathy in humans, causing characteristic changes in the small intestinal mucosa. In such cases, strict compliance to a gluten-free diet is usually recommended.
