Additional Donor Information:

Proinsulin is considered an important autoantigen in type 1 diabetes (T1D). Autoreactivity to Proinsulin is very common in T1D patients with the HLA-DRB1*0401 haplotype. The Proinsulin 73-90 peptide (GAGSLQPLALEGSLQKRG) has been identified as an immunodominant T cell epitope of HLA-DRB1*0401 subjects with beta-islet cell autoimmunity.

About Peptides

T cells recognize antigens in the form of short peptides. For CD8+ T cells, the peptides are typically 8–10 amino acids in length, while CD4+ T cells recognize longer peptides of 12–20 amino acids. Alterations of the amino acid sequence can dramatically affect T cell activation. Our peptides are synthesized, and purity is confirmed by HLPC and mass spectrometry.
