Species: Dermatophagoides farinae (American house dust mite)
NCBI Taxomony ID: 6954
Biochemical name:Chitinase, contains a C-terminal peritrophin-A-like domain
MW(SDS-PAGE):98/109 kDa
Allergenicity:Dogs!!! A purified preparation of 98/109kDa proteins elicited positive intradermal skin tests (IDST(s)) in almost all atopic dogs sensitized to D. farinae. Majority of sera showed IgE binding to 98/109 proteins in Western blots of D. farinae extracts. The allergen binds IgE in the sera of 70% of humans allergic to mites.
