To the protein chetiiist intent on explaining biologic activity of immunoglobulins in structural terms, IgE poses a formidable but rewarding challenge. I have been privileged to work on this topic for the last 37 years, having previously undertaken what has come to be recognized as the first serious attempt (18) to characterize chemically a major inhalant allergen (from horse dander). Consequently, I was in a key position to witness and participate in the exciting and sometimes dramatic events…

Unusual and Unexpected Allergic Reactions Can Be Unraveled by Molecular Allergy Diagnostics
TLDR
The aim of this review is to highlight the importance of clinical observations among allergic patients, focusing on systemic, or unusual and unexpected allergic reactions, where component-testing has further refined the diagnosis of IgE-mediated allergy.

1 Targeting IgE in allergic disease 2 3
15 Immunoglobulin E (IgE) represents the least abundant antibody isotype in human 16 serum. Nevertheless, it has the ability to induce remarkably potent allergic reactions. 17 As a key component in
From IgE to Omalizumab
TLDR
A historic perspective of allergy research that has led to the development of anti-IgE therapy and other strategies targeting IgE and its receptors and current IgE studies toward future precision medicine are reviewed.
Proteins isolated of Pueraria Radix possible to cause allergenic react with immunoglobulin E in human sera
TLDR
The results imply that Pueraria Radix can act as an allergen given the identification of IgE binding proteins among the isolated proteins of Puerarius Radix.
From IgE to clinical trials of allergic rhinitis
TLDR
Findings on immunological and clinical effects of allergen immunotherapy and anti-IgE therapy, which have been shown to have synergistic modes of action for the treatment of allergic rhinitis, are provided.
Immunoglobulin Glycosylation – An Unexploited Potential for Immunomodulatory Strategies in Farm Animals
TLDR
The functionality of IgG glycosylation during different physiological statuses, like aging, lactation and pathophysiological processes, is discussed and how new achievements in vaccination may contribute to improved animal welfare is pointed out.
The IgE Antibody and Its Use in Cancer Immunotherapy
TLDR
Advances of current technologies and experimental models, coupled with a better understanding of IgE-mediated immune effector mechanisms against targeted tumors, are expected to help elucidate the full potential of tumor-specific IgE antibodies for cancer immunotherapy.

β2A-Globulin as a Possible Carrier of Allergic Reaginic Activity
TLDR
Positive evidence has never been brought forward that β2A-globulin might be the essential carrier of reaginic activity, but this may be due to the fact that all skin-sensitizing preparations so far obtained contained appreciable amounts of γ- globulin.
A NEW CLASS OF HUMAN IMMUNOGLOBULINS. II. NORMAL SERUM IGD.
TLDR
A new class of immunoglobulin, IgD, was identified in normal human serum by immunochemical technics and was shown to possess type K (I) and type L (II) light chain determinants, similar to those present in other classes of Immunoglobulins.
ANTIGENIC RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN IMMUNE GLOBULINS AND CERTAIN RELATED PARAPROTEINS IN MAN
TLDR
These studies demonstrate that the determinant groups on the 7S γ-globulin molecule responsible for the cross-reaction with each of the other proteins are associated with the two fragments of 7Sγ- globulin which have the antibody-combining sites.
THE ASSOCIATION OF SKIN-SENSITIZING ANTIBODY WITH THE β2A-GLOBULINS IN SERA FROM RAGWEED-SENSITIVE PATIENTS
TLDR
It is concluded that the skin-sensitizing antibody activities in the three sera from treated ragweed-sensitive individuals studied were associated with the β2A-globulins.
Inhibition of binding of rat IgE to rat mast cells by synthetic IgE peptides
TLDR
Results suggest that residues within sequences 414–428, 459–473, 491–503 and 542–557 may contribute towards the mast cell receptor binding site on rat IgE.
Immunological studies of an atypical (myeloma) immunoglobulin.
An 8S myeloma component, isolated from serum of a patient with myelomatosis is described, which appears to have no antigenic determinants in common with human, α-, δ-, γ- or μ-polypeptide chains as

TLDR
Studies of the influence of the timing and siting of allergen-challenge provided a quantitative indication of the rapid and firm attachment of transferred reaginic antibodies to passively sensitized skin sites.
