OBJECTIVE Expression of the gene encoding Der-p2 allergen-like protein in the castor bean tick Ixodes ricinus is induced by blood intake. Tick Der-p2 allergen-like protein belongs to a diverse family of ML proteins that includes major allergens of house dust mites, human MD-2 or similar proteins from Drosophila melanogaster. In ticks, genes encoding proteins belonging to the ML protein family were identified, but their protein products have not been characterized yet. METHODS A gene encoding… CONTINUE READING
