Molecular cloning and expression of Cro s 1: an occupational allergen from saffron pollen (Crocus sativus).

Abstract

BACKGROUND The cultivation of saffron is expanding through the southeast of Iran, and allergy to saffron pollen occurs in workers involved in processing this plant. We aimed to clone, sequence and express a major allergen involved in saffron pollen allergy, and to compare the recombinant with the natural allergen. METHODS The N-terminal amino acid… (More)
