Allergen name: Cat r 1
Allergen source: Major taxonomic group: Plantae Eudikotyledons
Order: Gentianales
Species: Catharanthus roseus (Rosy periwinkle)
NCBI Taxomony ID: 4058
Biochemical name:Cyclophilin
Allergenicity:Fifteen subjects from India, all skin prick test positive to extract of Rosy periwinkle (Catharanthus roseus), showed IgE binding to an 18 kDa protein in the extract of pollen. Some showed IgE binding to other proteins. IgE binding using a pool of 5 subjects showed maximum inhibition with recombinant Cat r 1.0101 (cyclophilin), and partial inhibition with recombinant Mala s 6 and Asp f 11. Humanized RBL assay showed activation with sera from five subjects having at least 10% specific release of beta-hexoxaminidase.
