Etiologic significance of sunflower pollen in respiratory allergy

, : Etiologic significance of sunflower pollen in respiratory allergy. Current Science (Bangalore) 75(2): 150-152, July 25

Sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.) is cultivated by and large in different parts of India for its oil-yielding seeds, but the role of its pollen in the etiology of IgE-mediated respiratory allergic disorders has been largely overlooked. The purpose of the pre. sent study is to project the magnitude of allergic manifestations of the pollen of this plant which it can induce in atopic patients. Quantitative analyses of the proteins, free amino acids, carbohydrates and lipids of the pollen were performed to know the chemical nature. The protein profile was also studied by SDS-PAGE. Skin tests with the total protein extract were performed to prove its allergenic potential.
