Advanced Search for Allergens

Advanced search for allergens can be performed by using two search parameters.

Allergens from a specific taxonomic level can be retrieved based on the presence of attributes like 3-D Structure, IgE-binding epitope, IgE cross-reactive allergens and IgE antibodies. Select the taxonomic level (Ex. Animal) from the first Dropdown menu and select the desired attributes/parameters for the allergen from the second and third Dropdown menus. For example, search using Animal as taxonomic level and 3D Structure AND IgE Epitope as attributes will retrieve all allergens from animals that possess 3D structure and IgE-binding epitope.


Search By Taxonomic Level BASED ON  

AND



Allergens from a specific source organism can be retrieved based on the presence of attributes like 3-D Structure, IgE-binding epitope, IgE cross-reactive allergens and IgE antibodies. Enter/Type the name of source organism (Ex. Bos taurus) in the given text box and select the desired attributes/parameters for the allergen from the two Dropdown menus provided. For example, search using Bos taurus as source organism and 3D Structure AND IgE Cross-Reactivity as attributes will retrieve all allergens from Bos taurus possessing 3D structure and which show IgE cross-reactivity with other allergens.



Search By Source Organism BASED ON  

AND



Advanced Search for IgE Epitopes

Search For Sequential/Discontinuous Epitopes:

IgE epitopes are either sequential (linear) or discontinuous (conformational) in nature, which can be retrieved from a particular allergen or source organism. Select the epitope type from the first Dropdown menu (Ex. Sequential) and select the search criteria from the second Dropdown menu (Ex. Source Organism). Enter/Type the name of source organism (Ex. Bos taurus) in the given text box and search.


Select Epitope Type Enter Allergen Name/Source Organism

AND



Search For Major (Dominant)/Minor Epitopes:

AllerBase provides additional annotation for IgE epitope which states the nature of epitope viz. Major (Dominant)/Minor or Strongly/Weakly binding epitope based on its antibody affinity. This information has been curated from the relevant published references and retained as provided by the respective authors.
Select the epitope type from the first Dropdown menu (Ex. Major/Dominant) and select the search criteria from the second Dropdown menu (Ex. Allergen Name). Enter/Type the allergen name (Ex. Ara h 1) in the given text box and search
