on 5/6/2015 Andrea Wangorsch. of PEI sent a note and a submission to GenBank for a mature full length sequence of Pla a 3.0101, but there is a one-aa difference (last aa of 25) from the N-term sequencing in the I. Lauer paper for 3.0101, compared to the cDNA.In addition, Thermo Fisher has performed LC-MSMS on pollen sample and confirmed that the mature 3.0101 protein should NOT have the second V (position 25). Therefore we are replacing the N-terminal peptide sequence with the full-mature sequence determined by cDNA sequencing.
The original entry was ~ 2010, but the date of 6 May, 2015 is used for the updated cDNA sequence.

Sequence and data for Pla a 3.0201 was submitted 2015-05-06 REG
