  • 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… CONTINUE READING
