Department of ophthalmology, université Paris Descartes, hôpital Cochin, Assistance publique-Hôpitaux de Paris, 27, rue du Faubourg-Saint-Jacques, 75014 Paris, France.

Sarcoidosis is a systemic granulomatosis characterized by the formation of epithelioid and giant cell granulomas without caseous necrosis. To make the diagnosis, it is necessary to prove systemic granulomatosis involving at least two organs; but in practice, a combination of clinical, paraclinical and histologic findings is used. It affects predominantly women with a bimodal age distribution: 25-29years and 65-69years. Read More

How ERAP1 and ERAP2 Shape the Peptidomes of Disease-Associated MHC-I Proteins.

Front Immunol 2018 30;9:2463. Epub 2018 Oct 30.

Centro de Biología Molecular Severo Ochoa (CSIC-UAM), Madrid, Spain.

Four inflammatory diseases are strongly associated with Major Histocompatibility Complex class I (MHC-I) molecules: birdshot chorioretinopathy (HLA-A29:02), ankylosing spondylitis (HLA-B27), Behçet's disease (HLA-B51), and psoriasis (HLA-C06:02). The endoplasmic reticulum aminopeptidases (ERAP) 1 and 2 are also risk factors for these diseases. Since both enzymes are involved in the final processing steps of MHC-I ligands it is reasonable to assume that MHC-I-bound peptides play a significant pathogenetic role. Read More
