Employing transgenic plants as alternative systems to the conventional
Escherichia coli, Pichia pastorisor baculovirus hosts to produce recombin-ant allergens may offer the possibility of having available edible vaccines in
the near future. In this study, two EF-hand-type Ca
from olive pollen, Ole e 3 and Ole e 8, were produced in transgenic Arabid-opsis thaliana plants.
The present edition of "Current Insights in Pollen Allergens" provides recent aspects related to pollen allergy, a major medical problem which is still under thorough studies. The chapters of this book will be of significant value to those interested to get notions about molecular basis of pollen allergy, such as allergen proteins polymorphism and its implications in allergic disease, cross-reactivity between pollen and pollen-plant food derived allergens, as well as strategies for clinical trial and future research....
