Scallops, or fan shells, are found in all seas, both shallow and deep. There is some cross reactivity between crustaceans and mollusks. Allergic reactions include urticaria, angioedema, gastrointestinal distress, asthma, rhinitis, and anaphylaxis, and also severe allergic reactions, requiring emergency treatment. Sera shows IgE activity to a 38kD protein present in boiled muscle extracts of all mollusks, and these results suggest that the heat-stable 38kD protein is the major cross-reactive allergen present in crustaceans and mollusks, identified as the muscle protein tropomyosin. Immunoblot inhibitions have demonstrated up to 28% bi-directional cross-reactivity between shrimp and scallops, further confirming the major cross-reactive antigen as the respective tropomyosins of shrimps and scallops. It has been noted that many patients allergic to shrimp do not show clinical hypersensitivity reactions to mollusks or other seafood, indicating the existence of genus specific antigens. The allergen code is f338. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB. Source: ImmunoCap,
