It is difficult to visualize how pollen can trigger an attack of asthma, since airborne pollen grains are too large to be respirable [1.2]. However, pollen allergens, as distinct from the grains, areExpand

Bcp1, a gene required for male fertility in Arabidopsis.
Male fertility in flowering plants is dependent on production of viable pollen grains within the anther. Genes expressed exclusively in the anther are likely to include those that control maleExpand

Concentrations of the major birch tree allergen Bet v 1 in pollen and respirable fine particles in the atmosphere.
BACKGROUND Birch tree pollen allergens are an important cause of early spring hay fever and allergic asthma. Pollen counts provide a guide for individuals with birch pollen allergy. However, birchExpand

Mechanism of grass-pollen-induced asthma
Many asthmatics are sensitive to rye-grass pollen, but pollen grains are too large to penetrate the lower airways. Our aim was to investigate the mechanism by which rye-grass pollen causes asthma. AExpand

Major grass pollen allergen Lol p 1 binds to diesel exhaust particles: implications for asthma and air pollution
Background Grass pollen allergens are known to be present in the atmosphere in a range of particle sizes from whole pollen grains (approx. 20 to 55 μim in diameter) to smaller size fractions < 2.5 μExpand

Comparative analysis of fatty acids in pollen and seed of rapeseed
Abstract Lipids accounted for 31.7% of the dry wt of mature, viable pollen of rapeseed ( Brassica napus ). External lipids of the pollen coat, specified by the diploid parental genome, and internalExpand

Pollen-stigma interactions: Identification and characterization of surface components with recognition potential.
Male-female recognition in flowering plants is initiated by mutual contact of pollen and stigma surface components. Analysis of the surface macromolecules of both stigma and pollen of GladiolusExpand

A Study of Phospholipids and Galactolipids in Pollen of Two Lines of Brassica napus L. (Rapeseed) with Different Ratios of Linoleic to Linolenic Acid.
The phospholipids and galactolipids of the pollen-coat and internal domains of two lines of Brassica napus, Wesroona and IXLIN, with different linoleic/linolenic acid ratios (18:2/18:3) have beenExpand
