|Abstract||The antigenic targets of the rheumatoid arthritis (RA)-associated autoantibodies to "citrullinated" proteins are generated following citrullination by a peptidylarginine deiminase (PAD). Of the five PAD isotypes, two - PAD2 and PAD4 - are expressed in RA synovial tissue. Within this tissue, the activation of macrophages and fibroblasts mediated by T-cell contact or driven by cytokines plays a prominent part in the pathogenesis. We wanted to determine whether cytokine stimulation and contact with T cells could play a role in PAD expression by peripheral blood monocytes and fibroblastic synoviocytes.|
