The arginine-containing control peptides have identical sequences, except that they contain arginine residues instead of citrulline (Cit, citrulline). Peptides are designated by their abbreviated protein names (Eno, α-enolase; Vim, vimentin; Fib, fibrinogen; CII, type II collagen) followed by the positions of the first and last amino acid. For three peptides, earlier given specific names (CEP-1, CCP-1, citC1), these names are given in parallel. aCitrullinated at position 72. Uses the same control peptide containing two arginines as for Fibβ62-81b. bCitrullinated at position 74. Uses the same control peptide containing two arginines as for Fibβ62-81a. cThe citrullinated epitope in this peptide has been found to be citrullinated in RA synovial tissue (Per-Johan Jakobsson, personal communication).
