From submission: Results obtained from N-terminal sequencing and peptide mass fingerprinting of the protein gave reliable evidence that this proteins refers to the amino acid sequence from Uniprot Q647G3, a peanut oleosin. Therefore, a new allergen name is suggested. Sequence identity to the registered peanut oleosins Ara h 10 and Ara h 11 is below 48%. In addition, the sequence identity to the submitted allergen Ara h 14 is below 30 % (Alignments were performed using ClustalW2,
