There is little published evidence of allergy or IgE binding to the sequences previously recognized as Blo t 2. The submitters did not provide information for allergy to these proteins. However the 2011 publication by Kidon et al., indicates there were a number of subjects with IgE binding by direct ELISA with IgE to a slightly different sequence than any of the listed isoforms Blo t 2. That sequence is between 88% and 95% identical to the three indicated isoforms in IUIS. The reference is PMID 21332797. 26 Oct 2014 REG
