Both enzymatic and non-enzymatic post translational modification (PTM) of proteins involves chemical modifications. Some of these modifications are prerequisite for normal functioning of the cell. While other chemical modifications render them as 'neo-self' antigens, which are recognized as "non-self" leading to aberrant cellular and humoral immune responses. However, these modifications could be secondary effect of autoimmune diseases, as in the case of type I diabetes, hyperglycemia leads to protein glycation. The enigma of chemical modifications and immune response is akin to the 'chick and egg' paradox. Nevertheless, chemical modifications regulate immune response. In some of the well known autoimmune diseases such as Rheumatoid Arthritis, Systemic Lupus Erythematosus and Multiple Sclerosis, chemically modified proteins act as autoantigens forming immune complexes. In some instances, chemical modifications are also involved in regulating immune response during pathogen infection. Further, the usefulness of proteomic analysis of immune complexes is briefly discussed. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
