IgA and IgG tissue transglutaminase antibodies in systemic lupus erythematosus.
In the celiac patient group, there were no significant differences between the HLA tissue groups in diarrhea (p=0.087), osteoporosis (p=0.215), anemia (p=1.000), tissue transglutaminase antibodies (p=0.295), anti-gliadin antibodies (p=0.104), anti-endomysium antibodies (p=0.243).

Accuracy of antitissue transglutaminase IgA antibody in the diagnosis of paediatric celiac disease.
The immune response in celiac disease involves the production of antibodies against the intestinal enzyme tissue transglutaminase. These auto antibodies are either immunoglobulin G (IgG) or immunoglobulin A (IgA).
Methods: Ninety-five cases of patients diagnosed with coeliac disease and with positive serum tissue transglutaminase titres were retrieved from the Jordan University Hospital archives between December 2014 and December 2015.
"Latent CD" patients are described as "those with a normal jejunal biopsy but who test positive for immunoglobulin (Ig) A, endomysial antibody (EMA), and/or IgA-tissue transglutaminase (tTG)." (26)
FXIII is a transglutaminase (TG) that circulates in tetrameric form (FXIII-A[sub]2B[sub]2), consisting of two A subunits (FXIII-A) and two B subunits (FXIII-B).
