We are doing studies with Alternaria alternata antigen--Alt a 1.  I need =
to have as much info as possible on this--I have a limited library.  Any =
resources for this on Internet?  Is it found in spores and hyphae?  How =
can it be extracted from the cells and how long does it take?  How long =
does it survive in the mold?  How does it effect humans?

Also, I need to know techniques for harvesting this antigen from the =
mold cultures on plates.  Best nutrient for antigen production?  We're =
using mechanical means--swabs, glass rods.  Is there a better method?  =
Do we need to take all of the colony?? (i.e. the mold in the agar?)=20

Thanks!        Mycology Maggi
