Fucose alpha 1,3-linked to the core region of glycoprotein N-glycans creates an important epitope for IgE from honeybee venom allergic individuals.


The reactivity of sera from honeybee venom allergic patients with the N-glycan of phospholipase A2 was investigated using neoglycoproteins with an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Of 122 sera with appreciable levels of IgE antibodies directed against bee venom as measured by radioallergosorbent test, 34 sera exhibited significant amounts of glycan… (More)
