Differential T-cell responses and allergen uptake after exposure of dendritic cells to the birch pollen allergens Bet v 1.0101, Bet v 1.0401 and Bet v 1.1001.


The major birch pollen allergen Bet v 1 is present in pollen as a mixture of at least 14 isoforms that share high sequence and structural identities. These isoforms possess either a high or a low IgE-binding capacity which defines them as allergenic or hypoallergenic. Recently, we could demonstrate that only the allergenic isoform Bet v 1.0101 was able to… (More)
