BACKGROUND Lipid-transfer proteins (LTPs), but not Bet v 1 homologues, have been identified as major allergens of apple and peach in the Rosaceae fruit-allergic population in the Mediterranean area. Many of these patients show cosensitization to mugwort pollen. LTPs have an ubiquitous distribution in tissues of many plant species, and have been proposed as a novel type of plant panallergens. OBJECTIVE We sought to isolate LTPs from Artemisia pollen and from a plant food not belonging to the… CONTINUE READING
