P, protein staining of the pollen extracts with India ink (molecular weight is given according to the marker proteins), a-d, identification of allergens by use of antibodies raised in timothy grass pollen (a, rabbit anti Phl p 2/3; b, anti Phl p 13 (moab AF6); c, anti Phl p 5 (moab Bo1); d, anti Phl p 1 (moab IG12)); N1, N2, sera of healthy individuals; G1, G2, sera of grass pollen-allergic patients; 1-8, sera of the 8 workers exposed to maize pollen.
