Fungal allergens.
Recent significant progress in isolating and characterizing relevant fungal allergens is summarized in the present review, and some allergens from the genera Alternaria, Aspergillus, and Cladosporium are now thoroughly characterized and several other genera, including some basidiomycetes, have been purified.

Why are some proteins allergenic? Implications for biotechnology.
There is no evidence that recombinant proteins in newly developed foods are more allergenic than traditional proteins. Expand
Air- and Dustborne Mycoflora in Houses Free of Water Damage and Fungal Growth
Examination of detached single-family homes in metropolitan Atlanta, Ga., to establish a baseline of “normal and typical” types and concentrations of airborne and dustborne fungi in urban homes which were predetermined not to have noteworthy moisture problems or indoor fungal growth showed that rankings by prevalence and abundance did not differ from winter to summer.

Fungal aerobiology: exposure and measurement.
Taxonomy of Allergenic Fungi.
Close relationship between molecular fungal systematics and IgE sensitization provides an opportunity to systematically look at cross-reactivity and permits representatives from each taxon to serve as a proxy for IgE to the group. Expand
Allergy to basidiomycetes.
Identification and characterization of important cockroach allergens.
Chromatofocusing and subsequent skin test and RAST studies of AWBE and GWBE confirmed the presence of significant cockroach allergens with isoelectric points within the zone of pH 3.75 to 4.50. Expand
Health Risks from Exposure to Metals in Household Dusts
The results of this study indicate that exposure to indoor and/or outdoor dust presents a potential health risk for Louisiana residents. Expand
Identification of important allergens in German cockroach extracts by sodium dodecylsulfate-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and western blot analysis.
This investigation identified German cockroach allergens, established their relative importance by prevalence of reactivity to a large serum panel, and demonstrated that cockroach feces possess significant allergenic activity. Expand
