NCBI Taxomony ID: 6973
Biochemical name:Arginine kinase
Allergenicity:Two studies including this data by A Pomés with 10 of 23 subjects (43.5%) who were positive by case history for airway allergy, and positive by SPT with extract of Blatella germanica having also positive IgE by ImmunoCAP using Picchia produced recombinant Bla g 9 as the target (not yet published). Study by Chuang et al., 2010 with more than 7 subjects from Taiwan (>34%) with allergy and cockroach specific IgE being clearly positive by solid-phased immunobinding with native protein. A third study by Dillon et al., PMID 26414909 identified Th2 epitopes using cells from allergic subjects.
