Celiac disease is an autoimmune-like disorder that is triggered by dietary gluten and has a strong genetic association with the human leukocyte antigen locus, specifically, HLA-DQ2.5/DQ8. Here, Dahai-Koirala et al. apply ex vivo single-cell sequencing of TCRs from celiac disease patients, and show that biased T-cell receptor usage underpins the response to two gluten epitopes, which has implications for disease pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment.Mucosal Immunology advance online publication, 23 March 2016; doi:10.1038/mi.2016.17.
