Evaluating Potential Risks of Food Allergy and Toxicity of Soy Leghemoglobin Expressed in Pichia pastoris

PMCID: 5813221
PMID: 28921896
DOI: 10.1002/mnfr.201700297

[…] The AOL database ( is a peer‐reviewed allergen list and sequence database that is updated each year. We used the AOL as the primary tool in searching for matches to allergenic sequences. Three compa […]


Comprehensive in silico allergenicity assessment of novel protein engineered chimeric Cry proteins for safe deployment in crops

BMC Biotechnol
PMCID: 5541426
PMID: 28768539
DOI: 10.1186/s12896-017-0384-z

[…] and Technology at University of Nebraska, Lincoln. The database is functional from 2007 with constant updating and has a list of 2035 allergenic and putative allergenic protein sequences ( and 808 taxonomical protein groups. BLOSUM 50 score matrix is used in the database to predict homology between query and database proteins. All the database e […]


Genetically engineered bananas resistant to Xanthomonas wilt disease and nematodes

PMCID: 5488630
PMID: 28713567
DOI: 10.1002/fes3.101

[…] with any known toxic or allergenic proteins in databases. The peptide expressed in plantains is destroyed by cooking and by simulated intestinal fluid. It is not recognized as a potential allergen by Allergenonline ( or Allermatch (; Fiers et al. ), two tools that meet Food and Agriculture Organization/World Health Organization (FAO/WHO) Codex ali […]


Improving protein content and quality by over expressing artificially synthetic fusion proteins with high lysine and threonine constituent in rice plants

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5039639
PMID: 27677708
DOI: 10.1038/srep34427

[…] hand, some of seed proteins are responsible for allergy. We submitted both genes Os12g16880 and Os08g03579 as well as TKTKK motif sequences for BLAST searches against the allergy database ( The results showed that no sequence homology was found in the database. We have also used AllerHunter ( and Allerd […]


A novel lipid transfer protein from the pea Pisum sativum: isolation, recombinant expression, solution structure, antifungal activity, lipid binding, and allergenic properties

BMC Plant Biol
PMCID: 4852415
PMID: 27137920
DOI: 10.1186/s12870-016-0792-6

[…] For prediction of the potential allergenicity, we used allergen online databases “The Food Allergy Research and Resource Program” (FARRP) (, AllergenFP v.1.0 (, and Structural Database of Allergenic Proteins (SDAP) ( […]


Characterization of novel bacteriophage phiC119 capable of lysing multidrug resistant Shiga toxin producing Escherichia coli O157:H7

PMCID: 5028729
PMID: 27672499
DOI: 10.7717/peerj.2423

[…] database ( (). The predicted phage protein sequences were searched to identify proteins that were potentially allergenic using tools available at from the Food Allergy Research. This analysis was complemented with a search for conserved protein domains using InterProScan, HMMER, Prosite, Motif Search and SMART. Hypothetical i […]
