AF135: Ole e 6 family
Members of this family fold into a structure consisting of two nearly anti-parallel α-helices that are connected by a short loop and followed by a long, unstructured C-terminal tail. They contain 3 disulfide bonds. Their biological function is unknown.
Allergens from this family
One member of this family, the pollen protein Ole e 6 from olive tree (Olea europaea), exhibits allergenic activity with a high prevalence among olive pollen-allergic individuals [1, 2].
