Allergen Details:

Allergen name: Jug r 6
Allergen source: Major taxonomic group: Plantae Eudikotyledons
Order: Fagales
Species: Juglans regia (English walnut)
NCBI Taxomony ID: 51240
Biochemical name:7S globulin seed storage protein, vicilin-like protein
Allergenicity:Sera from nineteen of 76 walnut sensitized subjects demonstrated IgE binding to natural purified protein of 47 kDa, identified as a vicilin-like sugar binding protein. Horse radish peroxidase was used as a CCD inhibiting protein in blocking as there is a glycan sequon. That did not inhibit binding significantly. Extract of hazelnut and natural Cor a 11 as well as Pistachio extract and sesame extract had high inhibition for a few sera by ELISA.
Allergenicity reference:PubMed:30054513
Route of allergen exposure:Food
