Allergy diagnosis based on purified allergen molecules provides detailed information regarding the individual sensitization profile of allergic patients, allows monitoring of the development of allergic disease and of the effect of therapies on the immune response to individual allergen molecules. Allergen microarrays contain a large variety of allergen(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE The major cat allergen Fel d 1 represents one of the most important respiratory allergens. Aim of this study was to engineer recombinant Fel d 1 derivatives with reduced IgE reactivity and preserved T cell epitopes for vaccination and tolerance induction. METHODS Seven recombinant mosaic proteins were generated by reassembly of(More)
The major turnip (Brassica rapa) pollen allergen, belongs to a family of calcium-binding proteins (i.e., two EF-hand proteins), which occur as highly cross-reactive allergens in pollen of weeds, grasses and trees. In this study, the IgE binding capacity and allergenic activity of three recombinant allergen variants containing mutations in their(More)
BACKGROUND The calcium-binding 2EF-hand protein Phl p 7 from timothy grass pollen is a highly cross-reactive pollen pan-allergen that can induce severe clinical symptoms in allergic patients. Recently, a human monoclonal Phl p 7-specific IgG4 antibody (mAb102.1F10) was isolated from a patient who had received grass pollen-specific immunotherapy (SIT). (More)
Methods and results Sequence comparison showed a comparable sequence identity of approximately 70% between the 2EF-hand pollen allergens (Timothy grass: Phl p 7; Alder: Aln g 4; Birch: Bet v 4; Turnip rape: Bra r 1; Lamb ́s quarter: Che a 3; Olive: Ole e 3) and a lower sequence identity of 44% with the 4EF-hand allergen from olive pollen (Ole e 8).
