METHODS The ability of proteins in transgenic and non-transgenic soybeans, Brazil nuts, and purified 2S albumin to bind to IgE in serum from subjects allergic . Identification of a brazil-nut allergen in transgenic soybeans. J. A. Nordlee, S. L. Taylor, J. A. Townsend. Research output: Contribution to journal › Article. Background The nutritional quality of soybeans (Glycine max) is compromised by a relative deficiency of methionine in the protein fraction of the seeds.

Altenbach 4 Estimated H-index: Tanja Cirkovic Velickovic 17 Estimated H-index: Flickr Photos Follow Me: Genetic Transformation of Narbon Bean Vicia narbonensis. Ber e 1 protein: Allergenicity and tolerance to proteins from Brazil nut Bertholletia excelsa H. Expression of the 2S albumin from Bertholletia excelsa in Brassica napus. For instance the 2S family of seed storage proteins contains some of the most potent and dangerous of the plant allergens while other members of this gene family do not appear to be allergens.

Identificatiion about food allergens have become linked to the application of biotechnology to produce genetically engineered crops and has resulted in many regulatory proposals and regulations see Anonymous,for example, by the Royal Society. Citing articles via Web of Science Biotechnology has been used to remove a major allergen in soybean demonstrating that genetic modification can be used to reduce allergenicity of food and feed.

In the near idenification new GM plants will be approved and grown commercially that will possess enhanced traits targeted at the consumers and testing for allergenic potential will be one of the regulatory requirements. There have been reports of using this approach to suppress an allergen in shrimp that is potentially dangerous to sensitive people, as well as other experiments to suppress the primary allergen of the domestic cat.

Three subjects also underwent skin-prick testing with extracts of soybean, transgenic soybean, and Brazil nut.

Allergenic reactions, genetic modification, soybeans. With the significant intrinsic allergenicity of soybeans, producing hypoallergenic soybeans would be a desirable commodity given the presence of soybean protein in a large fraction of processed and prepared foods in industrialized countries.

Identification of a Brazil-nut allergen in transgenic soybeans.

Thank you for submitting a comment on this article. A chimeric gene encoding the methionine-rich 2S albumin of the Brazil nut Bertlrolletia excelsa H. Since veterinary pharmaceuticals seem to be the front-runners of plant-derived vaccines, we selected one model subunit vaccine, the structural capsid protein VP60 against rabbit haemorrhagic disease, and ana-lyzed the expression of three different sequences representing the vp60 open reading frame in potato plants.

The premarket safety system protects the consumer and the producer. Marsh zoybeans, Thomas A.


Email alerts New issue alert. Protein engineering could be performed to alter amino acid sequence by disrupting allergenic sequences.

There is no evidence that GM crops actually pose risks that are even a small fraction of the risks encountered daily from the naturally occurring plant allergens. Calcium- and calmodulin-regulated microtubule-associated proteins as signal-integration hubs at the plasma membrane—cytoskeleton nexus. Soybeans have great potential to be engineered to produce altered and novel proteins and oils, not only for food and animal feel but also as industrial precursors.

It was therefore obvious that if a gene is taken from a plant to which people are allergic, one should be careful that an allergen has not been transferred. Marion Zarkadas 2 Estimated H-index: Developers understand the need for safety testing. Factors which influence the Agrobacterium mediated transformation of soybean. Goldman 10 Estimated H-index: What is striking about these data is that within gene families there are members that vary widely in stimulating an allergenic response.

Allergenicity of various peanut products as determined by RAST inhibition. Evolutionary Genetic Engineering in the Indo-Pacific: Soybeans possess as many as 15 proteins recognized by IgEs from sensitive people Burks et al.
