Table 1 Bet v 1 distribution in the epithelial cells and tissues in allergic patients.

From: Allergy as an epithelial barrier disease

   Distribution of Bet v 1
Cell level On the surfaces of villi 18%
  Within villi 11%
  Within cytoplasm 51%
  Within vesicles 17%
  Within nuclei 3%
Tissue level On the apical surface 7%
  Epithelial cell layer 1 29%
  Epithelial cell layer 2 26%
  Epithelial cell layer 3 22%
  Epithelial cell layer 4 16%
  1. Note that the epithelium of healthy patients neither bound nor transported the Bet v 1 allergen.
