Abstract
Oak pollen allergy is common all over the world and an important cause of pollinosis. The molecular properties of some component allergens have been clearly characterized, while some of them are still waiting for characterization. Studies on some oak component allergens are neglected, possibly because of its high cross-reactivity to birch. However, the utilization of culprit allergen molecules is expected to increase the diagnostic sensitivity and efficacy of immunotherapy. Sensitization to oak pollen along with birch often causes pollen food allergy syndrome to fruits and vegetables. Acorn and wood dust from oak can cause allergic disease. We summarize the distribution and taxonomic classification of oak trees of allergenic importance. Molecular characteristics of the identified component allergens, cross-reactivity, and clinical aspects for diagnosis and immunotherapy are also described with an emphasis on Korean situations.
