Allergen Details:

Allergen name: Tyr p 20
Lineage: Source: Animalia Arthropoda
Order: Astigmata
Species: Tyrophagus putrescentiae (Storage mite)
Biochemical name:Arginine Kinase
Allergenicity:298 subjects attending the Taichung Veterans General Hospital were recruited with at least asthma, rhinitis, atopic dermatitis or eczema. They were tested by SPT to recombinant protein.
