Identification of potentially cross-reactive peanut-lupine proteins by computer-assisted search for amino acid sequence homology.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Allergic cross-reactions are an issue of major concern because of implications for public health. The molecular basis of cross-allergy is the similarity of epitopes belonging to proteins of different organisms. Lupine is an emerging cause of food allergy, which has become a 'hot topic' because of recent large-scale introduction into processed… (More)
