BACKGROUND: Better understanding of the relevance of the immune response to common environmental allergens, such as the major house dust mite (HDM) allergen Der p 2, requires characterization of constituent T-cell epitopes. AIM: To identify CD4(+) T-cell epitopes within Der p 2 recognized by commonly expressed human leucocyte antigen (HLA) alleles. METHODS: HLA-blocking antibodies, peptide pools and truncations were used in ELISpot assays to establish restricted T-cell epitopes. RESULTS: Peop...Expand abstract
