Allergens are proteins or glycoproteins that are recognized by IgE produced by the immune system of allergic individuals. Until now around 1,500 allergenic structures have been identified and this number seems not have reached a plateau after 3-4 decades of research and the advent of molecular biology. Several allergen databases are available on Internet. Different aims and philosophies lead to different products. Here we report about main feature of web sites dedicated to allergens and we… CONTINUE READING
