The fear of allergic reactions has produced much of the concern about the risks of GM crops. Food allergies do have a genetic component exhibited in multiple generations of some families.

To improve the nutritional quality, methionine-rich 2S albumin from the Brazil nut Bertholletia excelsa has been introduced into transgenic soybeans.

The gen-eration of antigenic VP60 molecules rransgenic the leaf and tuber tissue of potato was tremendously enhanced by replacing virus-derived sequences with plant-optimized codons. With the significant intrinsic allergenicity of soybeans, producing hypoallergenic soybeans would be a desirable commodity given the presence of soybean protein in a large fraction of processed brazil-nuut prepared foods in industrialized countries.

Sarah Jane Rahn 3 Estimated H-index: Romijn University of Nebraska—Lincoln. The premarket safety evaluation that is applied to GM crops, but not conventional crops or organic products, has little difficulty detecting known food allergens.

Goldman 10 Estimated H-index: Allergenic reactions to proteins expressed in GM crops has been one of the prominent concerns among biotechnology critics and a concern of regulatory agencies.


The soybean never made out of early stages in development; brazill-nut was never submitted to regulators nor was any attempt ever made to market it. Improvement of the nutritional quality of legume seed storage proteins by molecular breeding Daisuke YamauchiT.

Using linear peptides to test possible modifications, it is straightforward to assay numerous variants and pick one that is not recognized by the IgE population.

Abstract Allergenic reactions to proteins expressed in GM crops has been one of the prominent alergen among biotechnology critics and a concern of regulatory agencies.

3.1—GM soybeans are no more allergenic than conventional soybeans

allergeb Background The nutritional quality of soybeans Glycine max is compromised aloergen a relative deficiency of methionine in the protein fraction of the seeds. Soybeans like many plants have intrinsic allergens that present problems for sensitive people.

HoffmanHayden LowensteinD. From This Paper Topics from this paper. It is well established that almost all food allergens are proteins—and we know that proteins are encoded by genes Mills and other Genetically modified plants and food hypersensitivity diseases: Much has been learned about the protein sequence epitopes of food allergens by using epitope maps constructed with overlapping short peptides encompassing the entire protein.

Oz Interview with Dr. Allergy models and related assays to test the allergic qualities of Escherichia coli heat labile toxin subunit B. This is exactly how the premarket safety assessment is supposed to help developers ensure that only products that are as safe as any other food reach the market. FDA attacks food allergens J. Soybeans have great potential to be engineered to produce altered and novel proteins and oils, not only for food and animal feel but also as industrial precursors.

When Pioneer started this project the protein bdazil-nut selected was not known to be a potential allergen. One example is the kiwi fruit that became widely available in Western countries relatively recently.

Thomas International archives of allergy and immunology Protein engineering could be performed to alter amino acid sequence by disrupting identificatin sequences. Genetic Transformation of Narbon Bean Vicia narbonensis. Genetic engineering of plants for experimental purposes is now commonly undertaken and the results are recorded in journals such as this one.

Baumert University of Nebraska—LincolnR. The epitope modification approach has been studied for peanut allergens and it does seem to be feasible to produce an essentially hypoallergenic variant.

Plant food protein engineering. The presence of so many distinct linear epitopes means that the probability of a naturally occurring variant with a sufficient number of alterations to disrupt the allergenicity is extremely small. Allergenic reactions to the storage proteins of tree nuts, sesame, sunflower, and peanuts are responsible for many scores of deaths in the US and Europe on an annual basis, with many more worldwide, but they are not as diligently recorded in the medical literature.

Initial studies with model plant seeds such as tobacco showed that genes encoding seed proteins with enhanced methionine content such as the prolamines and 2S albumins could be transferred and expressed so that these foreign proteins could contribute to the overall amino acid content. The story about the Brazil nut allergen that was transferred into soybeans by genetic engineering is offered as proof by Smith that GM technology could be used to transfer an allergen to a food.
