The major celery allergen Api g 1 is a member of the pathogenesis-related 10 class protein family. This study aims to investigate the impact of heat and pH on the native protein conformation required for Immunoglobulin E (IgE) recognition.
Spectroscopic methods, MS and IgE-binding analyses are used to study the effects of pH and thermal treatment on Api g 1.0101. Heat processing results in a loss of the native protein fold via denaturation, oligomerization, and precipitation along with a subsequent reduction of IgE recognition. The induced effects and timescales are strongly pH dependent. While Api g 1 refolds partially into an IgE-binding conformation at physiological pH, acidic pH treatment leads to the formation of structurally heat-resistant, IgE-reactive oligomers. Thermal processing in the presence of a celery matrix or at pH conditions close to the isoelectric point (pI = 4.63) of Api g 1.0101 results in almost instant precipitation.
This study demonstrates that Api g 1.0101 is not intrinsically susceptible to heat treatment in vitro. However, the pH and the celery matrix strongly influence the stability of Api g 1.0101 and might be the main reasons for the observed temperature lability of this important food allergen.
