Order: Fagales
Species: Juglans regia (English walnut)
NCBI Taxomony ID: 51240
Biochemical name:PR-10
Allergenicity:Based on case history of allergy to English walnut, for those with + IgE binding by ImmunoCAP to recombinant E. coli produced protein (Walnut specific Immunocap to PR-10) and SPT (used Alyostal, Stallergens). Food challenges with DBPCFC 9 positive, open food challenge, 5 positive were both done using raw walnut from a local food market. seems to be due to primary sensitization to birch pollen allergy. But they have evidence this PR-10 is expressed in the nut and it was able to inhibit bindign to a 20 kDa IgE binding band in walnut extract.
