Association of class II sequences encoding DR1 and DQ5 specificities with hypersensitivity to chironomid allergen Chi t I.

Abstract

A panel of 188 unrelated Caucasian subjects who were exposed to the larvae of Chironomus thummi (Diptera, nonbiting midges) was HLA-typed by polymerase chain reaction amplification of the second exons of the DRB, DQA1, and DQB1 genes followed by dot-blot hybridization with sequence-specific oligonucleotide probes. Type I sensitization to the allergen Chi t… (More)
