The gene encoding the major horse allergen, designated Equus caballus allergen 1 (Equ c1), was cloned from total cDNA of sublingual salivary glands by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction using synthetic degenerate oligonucleotides deduced from N-terminal and internal peptide sequences of the glycosylated hair dandruff protein. A recombinant form(More)
Histamine release experiments were performed over a 10(6)-fold range of allergen concentrations on basophils of patients sensitive to Dermatophagoides farinae. Two extracts of D. farinae were used, a partially purified one (Df 80d) containing several allergens and a highly purified component (Ag11). This histamine release patterns obtained with the complex(More)
Equ.cl, the horse (Equus caballus) major allergen, was identified in a partially purified extract obtained from a crude aqueous horse dander extract, by acetonic precipitation and a salting-out process. It was isolated and purified by size-exclusion chromatography followed by hydrophobic interaction chromatography. Equ.cl appeared as an almost pure protein(More)
Venom from young (0 to 48 hours after eclosion) Vespa orientalis should presumably be less allergenic and/or antigenic than venom from adult hornets. This point was confirmed by skin tests, by crossed immunoelectrophoresis and by radioallergosorbent test (RAST), using rabbit IgG antibodies and human IgE antibodies. It is suggested that the venom of young(More)
The fractionation of a partially-purified extract of Dermatophagoïdes farinae mite culture has been undertaken by gel filtration. Two fractions were isolated. One, P25, is a protein-rich fraction with mol. wt about 25,000. The other, GP8, is a polysaccharide-rich fraction with mol. wt around 8,000. By crossed immunoelectrophoresis, we detected eleven(More)
Basophils from allergic or non-atopic donors were depleted for their native membrane IgE by acid treatment and then passively sensitized by Dermatophagoïdes farinae specific IgE containing sera. Histamine release experiments were performed with a highly purified allergen (Df 11) on native cells, acid treated cells and passively sensitized cells. In the(More)
