Relevance of IgE binding to short peptides for the allergenic activity of food allergens.


BACKGROUND Analysis of IgE antibody binding to epitopes provides information for food allergy diagnosis and management and construction of hypoallergenic candidate vaccines, but the contribution of sequential epitopes to functionally relevant IgE binding is not fully understood. OBJECTIVES We sought to study the impact of IgE-binding peptides described as… (More)
