BACKGROUND Peanut allergy is one of the five most frequent food allergies in children and in adults. Recently, we purified and evaluated the allergenicity of peanut oleosins, a family of small-sized proteins involved in the formation of peanut oil bodies. METHODS Allergenicity of the purified native protein and of the recombinant protein was tested by Western blot and by IgE-RIA. RESULTS We found IgE-binding with oleosin in 3 of 14 sera of patients who had suffered an allergic reaction to… CONTINUE READING
