Turnip Allergy Resources

There are 3 food allergens associated with turnip allergy. Bra r 1 is a 2S albumin protein. These are seed storage proteins most commonly found in nuts and seeds.

Bra r 2 is prohevein protein which is used in the plant for defence. Bra r 3 is a polcalcin protein. These are commonly called panallergens and are usually associated with airway allergens (pollens).

Orange Allergy Resources

There are 4 allergens found in oranges. Cit s 2 is a profilin protein. Allergenic profilins are found exclusively in flowering plants and are minor pollen allergens.

Cit s 3 is a lipid transfer protein (LTP). These proteins are resistant to heat and are found in many types of plants. Patients suffering from a more severe allergy to cooked fruit may be sensitised to this group of proteins

Hazelnut Allergy Resources

There are 11 allergens associated with hazelnut allergy. Three are airway allergens and the other eight are all food allergens.

Cor a 8 is a lipid transfer protein (LTP). This group of proteins commonly cause allergic symptoms.

Cor a 9 is an 11S protein (also known as legumin like). Cor a 11 is a 7S protein (also known as vicilin like) and Cor a 14 is a 2S protein. These groups of proteins are involved in seed storage and are common in many nuts and seeds. This is why a person suffering from a tree nut allergy is often allergic to most nuts and seeds.
