Allergen Details:

Allergen name: Art an 7
Allergen source: Major taxonomic group: Plantae Eudikotyledons
Order: Asterales
Species: Artemisia annua (Sweet Wormwood)
NCBI Taxomony ID: 35608
Biochemical name:Putative Galactose Oxidase
Allergenicity:Case history of weed pollen inhalation allergy, in vitro IgE to mugwort extract, to natural purified protein (15 Chinese subjects by reducing immunoblot) and 125 of 130 Chinese subjects by ImmunoCAP, 15 of 15 by IgE reducing immunoblot, but fewer with recombinant protein as seen in draft manuscript. With only one clearly positive in ImmunoCAP with recombinant protein. Dutch pollen allergic subjects, 19 of 20 were positive by natural purified protein ImmunoCAP, but only 10 to recombinant protein, and those values were only modest (>0.35 kUA to 1.8 kUA). Four of 8 Chinese subjects were positive to natural pure protein by SPT. There is some possible involvement of carbohydrate (CCD+ and also possibly to arabinofuranosides based on paper by Xie Ning and CM Taylor, 2014).
