Amb V Allergen superfamily (IPR036712)

Short name: Amb_V_allergen_sf

Overlapping entries


Amb V is an Ambrosia sp (ragweed) pollen allergen. Amb t V has been shown to contain a C-terminal helix as the major T cell epitope. Free sulphydryl groups also play a major role in the T cell recognition of cross-reactivity T cell epitopes within these related allergens [PMID: 7594515].

Structurally, Amb V has an alpha+beta fold composed of three antiparallel strands followed by a short alpha helix.
