Celery is a frequent cause of food allergy in pollen-sensitized patients and may induce severe allergic reactions. Allergic reactions against celery are of major clinical relevance due to celery's wide presence in convenience foods and spice. Approximately 3% - 4% of the European and American population and 5% of young children are affected by immunoglobulin E (IgE) mediated food allergy. The symptoms ranging from mild oral pruritus to a possible life-threatening anaphylactic shock.</p> <strong>Technology</strong><br> We offer novel linear IgE-binding peptide epitopes of the major celery aller-gen Api g1 for the diagnosis and therapy of celery allergy. The peptides can also serve as a basis for the detection of traces of Api g1 allergens in food and other products. Based on the novel peptides, a high specific assay was developed which allows the differentiation between celery allergic patients and healthy individuals.</p>

Max Planck researchers revel the nano-structure of molecular trains and the reason for smooth transport in cellular antennas.
Moving around, sensing the extracellular environment, and signaling to other cells are important for a cell to function properly. Responsible for those tasks...
Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.
Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...
Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.
Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...
Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.
In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...
