Allergen Details:

Allergen name: Hel a 6
Lineage: Source: Plantae Magnoliopsida
Order: Asterales
Species: Helianthus annuus (Sunflower)
Biochemical name:Pectate Lyase
MW(SDS-PAGE):42 kDa
Allergenicity:Subjects used in these tests have airway allergy, presumably from sunflower pollen. Six negative controls were used in serum IgE tests and Skin Prick Tests (SPT). Fifty three patients from Kolkata, India were tested by serum IgE binding to purified natural protein, with 19 having positive binding. Seventy five subject were tested by SPT with 28 positive. Basophil activation was tested using 12 subjects, four of them gave positive responses. The three controls to basophil tests were negative. The protein was purified by chromatography and gel electrophoresis, and found to be 95% pure. LC-mass spectrometry identified five peptides matching protein accession number OTF85892.1 in teh GenBank Protein database. A publication is in progress.
