Allergen Details:

Allergen name: Der f 29
Allergen source: Major taxonomic group: Animalia Arthropoda
Order: Sarcoptiformes
Species: Dermatophagoides farinae (American house dust mite)
NCBI Taxomony ID: 6954
Biochemical name:Peptidyl-prolyl cis-trans isomerase (cyclophilin)
Allergenicity:35 of 41 HDM sensitized subjects had IgE binding to Der f 29, cyclophilin, by immunoblot, 9 shown in publication. The nine were positive by ELISA and activated CCR3 >20% in BAT. In addition, 7 or 10 HDM allergic subjects were SPT + to rDer f 29.
Allergenicity reference:PubMed:23481662
Route of allergen exposure:Airway
Date Created:04-11-2014
Last Updated:2019-08-15 20:27:50
Submitter Info:
Name:Su An
Institution:Kunming Institute of Zoology, Chinese Academy of Sciences
City:Kunming, China
Submission Date:2013-10-17

NOTE: Zhiling Liang; Jianli Lin; Zhigang Liu; Pingchang Yang; Yulan Wu; Xiaoyu Liu submitted an identical protein sequence to IUIS on 2014-10-17 before we posted the An Su sequence. Liang et al., state that their protein was 19 kDa, nucleotide accession KM010000, but called it Der f 26. However due to prior submission Su An submission takes precedent. For allergenicity Liang et al., stated 9 of 52 subjects were SPT positive with recombinant, and 5 of 5 were positive by immunoblot and ELISA testing IgE.

NOTE: NCBI and UniProt show "Der f 29" as profilin, but that entry (Accession AIO08866.1) was not submitted to IUIS and is illegitimate.
