Cat allergen 1: Biochemical, antigenic, and allergenic properties.

Leitermann K, Ohman JL Jr.

Cat allergen 1, an important agent in human allergic reactions, has been
partially purified by affinity chromatography. Heating the purified allergen at
100 degrees C for 30 min resulted in a 28% loss in the antigenicity of the
allergen molecule (determined by Laurell rocket assay), although lower
temperatures had little effect. Its allergenicity (determined by passive transfer
skin test) was diminished slightly after heating to 56 degrees C or 100 degrees
C. Reduction with dithiothreitol or 2-mercaptoethanol resulted in greater losses
of antigenicity and allergenicity but did not obliterate these properties. Three
forms of the affinity-purified allergen (isoallergens) differing slightly in
isoelectric point were demonstrated by isoelectric focusing followed by crossed
immunoelectrophoresis. The molecular weight of cat allergen 1 under physiologic
conditions was 35,000 +/- 2000 as determined by gel filtration in Sephadex G-75.
Under the dissociative conditions of sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gel
electrophoresis, with or without prior reduction by dithiothreitol, cat allergen
1 appeared to exist as an antigenically active subunit with a molecular weight of
18,000 +/- 2000. This subunit molecular weight estimate was confirmed by gel
filtration in 6M guanidine hydrochloride. The stability of the allergenic and
antigenic activity of cat allergen 1 suggests that this activity may be
determined partially by the primary sequence of allergenic sites on the molecule.
The separation and purification of molecular subunits may allow sequence analysis
of these sites.
