ResumenAntifilaggrin autoantibodies (AFA) have described to be the most specific markers of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and epitopes containing citrulline within the sequence of filaggrin identified as major antigenic sites recognised by AFA. In this paper we confirm that citrulline is an essential constituent of filaggrin related antigenic determinants recognised by RA specific autoantibodies, thus having an important role for the development of filaggrin peptides based serological tests. Moreover, we describe our findings on the comparative conformational analysis of filaggrin (306–324) peptide sequence and an analogue in which two arginines were simultaneously substituted by citrulline carried out by Circular Dichroism (CD) and Fourier-Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR). Results might contribute to the understanding of the structural features that may be important to explain the enhanced binding characteristics of citrullinated peptides to the autoantibodies in rheumatoid arthritis.
