Título Direct release of the allergen tulipalin A from Alstroemeria cut flowers: A possible source of airborne contact dermatitis?
Información bibliográfica Dec. 1999, Vol.41, No.6, p.320-324. Illus. 28 ref.
Resumen Alstroemeria is one of the top 10 cut flower species on the Dutch market. This study investigates the possibility that tulipalin A released from Alstroemeria could be a source of airborne contact dermatitis. The allergen tulipalin A was collected, quantified and identified from cut flowers of two Alstroemeria hybrids. The amounts of tulipalin A released into the air were correlated with tulipalin A and total allergen content (tulipalin A and tuliposides) in the plant tissue, respectively. Tulipalin A was released primarily from the wounded areas, i.e. the stems, although small amounts were also emitted from the undamaged flowers in one of the hybrids. The content of tulipalin A exceeded that of tuliposides in leaves and flowers of both hybrids, whereas the content of tulipalin A in stems (in % fresh weight) was slightly lower than the content of tuliposides.
