This project is a Ph.D. project, which aims to investigate the basis for the hypothesis that food allergens do not need to be presented to the immune system in intact form or as large fragments to be allergenic. The project will be carried out by studying the physico-chemical nature and allergenicity of break down products of food allergens after gastro-intestinal digestion, and thereby elucidate the significance of aggregation of peptides on the sensitising capacity. Model allergens will be Ara h 1 from peanut and casein from milk.
