Mosquito Allergy and Mosquito Salivary Allergens
Allergic reactions to mosquito bites are caused by allergens in mosquito saliva. In this review, allergic reactions to mosquito salivary allergens, and characteristics of salivary allergens and their recombinant forms are described. The use of the recombinant allergens in the diagnosis of mosquito allergy is discussed.

More about this publication?
- Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
