LP19195-4   Penicillium sp
Test to detect allergy to Penicillium notatum(also known as Penicillium chrysogenum), the allergen code is m1. Penicillium is the blue-green mold that forms on stale bread, cheese, and other foods and is used in the production of green and blue mold cheese. Penicillium is one of the molds most often producing positive skin test reactions in allergic patients. P notatum is one of the most common species of Penicillium. Penicillium molds prefer damp, dark places, but will also grow elsewhere. Penicillium colonies are rapidly growing, flat, filamentous, and velvety, woolly, or cottony in texture. 11 allergenic components have been identified in P notatum, the major allergen being a 68kDa protein recognized by IgE antibodies in about half the patients. Hypersensitivity to the penicillium mold has no relationship to hypersensitivity to the antibiotic Penicillin. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB. Source: ImmunoCap
