Immunoglobulin E antibodies that crossreact with vegetable foods, pollen, and Hymenoptera venom.


IgE in some human sera reacted with an antigen present in a large number of unrelated foods: potato, spinach, wheat, buckwheat, peanut, honey and others. The antigen, which was periodate-sensitive and heat-stable, was also found in pollen. Even more surprisingly, these antibodies often reacted in vitro with bee and vespid venom and were sometimes apparently induced by Hymenoptera stings.
