The prevalence of allergies is increasing since mid twentieth century; however the underlying causes of this increase are not fully clear. Understanding the mechanism by which a harmless protein becomes an allergen provides us with the basis to prevent and treat these diseases. Although most studies on allergen immunogenicity have traditionally focused on structural properties of the proteins, it is increasingly clear that allergenicity cannot be determined only based on structural features of… Expand
Oral Mucosa as a Potential Site for Diagnosis and Treatment of Allergic and Autoimmune Diseases
TLDR
An overview of the recent knowledge about the role of the oral mucosa in food-induced allergic reactions, as well as in severe respiratory allergies or food- induced autoimmune diseases, such as celiac disease is provided. Expand
Biophysical and biological impact on the structure and IgE-binding of the interaction of the olive pollen allergen Ole e 7 with lipids.
TLDR
The ability of Ole e 7 to interact and bind to a wide range of lipids, especially negatively charged phospholipids and oleic acid is demonstrated, suggesting how lipid-protein interactions could define the behaviour of the allergen once inhaled at the airways. Expand
Pollen Lipids Can Play a Role in Allergic Airway Inflammation
  • Å. Dahl

  • 2018
TLDR
In seed plants, pollen grains carry the male gametes to female structures, and cause airway inflammation in one out of four persons in the population, which was traditionally attributed to soluble glycoproteins, leaking into the nasal mucosa or the conjunctiva. Expand
Interaction of Non-Specific Lipid-Transfer Proteins With Plant-Derived Lipids and Its Impact on Allergic Sensitization
TLDR
The current knowledge on diversity of lipid ligands of plant LTPs is summarized, recent studies performed with allergenic nsLTPs are illustrated to investigate the effect of lipid binding on the structural modification and IgE-binding properties of proteins, and the potential effect on the innate immune responses. Expand
Innate Immune Responses in the Alternaria-Dendritic Cell Interaction
TLDR
This study reveals that A. alternata components may balance the innate immune responses between Th2 and Th17 pathways, and/or contributes to the development and exacerbation of more serve neutrophilic forms of asthma. Expand
Air Pollution and Climate Change Effects on Allergies in the Anthropocene: Abundance, Interaction, and Modification of Allergens and Adjuvants
TLDR
An overview of physical, chemical and biological interactions between air pollution, climate change, allergens, adjuvants and the immune system, addressing how these interactions may promote the development of allergies is provided. Expand
LPS priming in early life decreases antigen uptake of dendritic cells via NO production.
TLDR
The results suggested that an exposure to infections in early life prevents allergy through the alteration of the BM cells fate that is to induce the differentiation of BM cells into inhibitory DCs such as NO-producing DCs. Expand
Exposure and Sensitization to Pets Modify Endotoxin Association with Asthma and Wheeze.
TLDR
Exposure to dog and cat allergens enhances the association of endotoxin with asthma and wheeze, and Associations of log-endotoxin and pet exposure with respiratory outcomes were examined. Expand
Endolysosomal protease susceptibility of Amb a 1 as a determinant of allergenicity.
summary In the absence of extrinsic adjuvants, purified Amb a 1 induced a strong Th2-polarized immune response in mice. This high allergenic activity seems to be linked to the allergen’sExpand
Aerosol Health Effects from Molecular to Global Scales.
TLDR
The role of distinct PM components in health impacts and mortality needs to be clarified by integrated research on various spatiotemporal scales for better evaluation and mitigation of aerosol effects on public health in the Anthropocene. Expand

Determinants of allergenicity.
TLDR
Diverse determinants that contribute to the phenomenon of allergenicity are summed up and it is outlined that in addition to the structure and function of the allergenic, factors derived from allerGEN carriers, the environment, and the susceptible individual are of importance. Expand
Structural biology of allergens
TLDR
Major allergens may have special aerobiological properties and allergenic structures that can enhance allergenicity via Toll-like receptor (TLR) or CD1 pathways and peptides as well as nonproteinaceous ligands. Expand
The Role of Lipid Transfer Proteins in Allergic Diseases
TLDR
Although Pru p 3 represents the predominant LTP in terms of patients’ IgE recognition, the contribution of pollen LTPs in primary sensitization cannot be ruled out andcule-based approaches in allergy research and diagnosis are important for better understanding of LTP allergy. Expand
Do lipids influence the allergic sensitization process?
TLDR
The association with lipids protects food allergens from gastrointestinal degradation and facilitates their uptake by intestinal cells, which will have a major influence on how allergic sensitization will be viewed and studied in the future. Expand
Allergens as Immunomodulatory Proteins: The Cat Dander Protein Fel d 1 Enhances TLR Activation by Lipid Ligands
TLDR
It is proposed that Fel d 1 and Can f 6 belong to a group of allergen immunomodulatory proteins that enhance innate immune signaling and promote airway hypersensitivity reactions in diseases such as asthma. Expand
Secretion of Proinflammatory Eicosanoid-Like Substances Precedes Allergen Release from Pollen Grains in the Initiation of Allergic Sensitization
TLDR
The finding opens a new dimension of understanding of the early events in allergic sensitization, indicating that proinflammatory effects of the allergen carrier, e.g. the pollen grain itself, can lead to activation of the mucosal membrane. Expand
Food allergen protein families and their structural characteristics and application in component-resolved diagnosis: new data from the EuroPrevall project
TLDR
This review is dedicated to summarizing current knowledge about the most important food allergen protein families and to presenting data from the EuroPrevallAllergen library, a proof-of-concept collection of highly purified, characterized and authenticated food allergens from animal and plant food sources to facilitate improved diagnosis of food allergies. Expand
Allergenicity resulting from functional mimicry of a Toll-like receptor complex protein
TLDR
The results indicate that Der p 2 tends to be targeted by adaptive immune responses because of its auto-adjuvant properties, suggesting that intrinsic adjuvant activity by such proteins and their accompanying lipid cargo may have some generality as a mechanism underlying the phenomenon of allergenicity.

What establishes a protein as an allergen?

  • Chemistry, Medicine
  • Journal of chromatography. B, Biomedical sciences and applications
  • 2001
TLDR
The functional activity of some allergens may play a role among other factors in the process of sensitization and allergic responses, and three-dimensional structures of many more allergens have to be determined to allow for a better understanding of the molecular basis of allergenicity. Expand
The Role of Protein Glycosylation in Allergy

TLDR
Low binding affinity between IgE and plant N-glycans now drops out as a plausible explanation for the benign nature of CCDs, which may result from blocking antibodies induced by an incidental ‘immune therapy’ exerted by everyday contact with plant materials. Expand
