Cannabis pollen allergens were detected using the serum of an allergic patient. The allergens were then purified by sequential column chromatography (including DE52 cellulose and phenyl-Sepharose CL-4B) and preparative HPLC. The molecular weight of the allergens were determined as 10 050 and 13 706 by matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time of flight mass spectrometry. We utilised Western blotting and development of an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay for the detection of Cannabis pollen allergens. Copyright (C) 1998 Elsevier Science Ireland Ltd.
