Table 2 Bet v 1-associated nasal epithelial proteins found in the allergic, but not in the healthy subjects.

From: Allergy as an epithelial barrier disease

Proteins found in caveolae and lipid rafts.  
Name Functions
ACTG, gamma actin A subunit of microfilaments, one of the three major components of the cytoskeleton
ANXA2, Annexin 2 Belongs calcium-binding proteins, suppresses phospholipase A2 and thus inhibits inflammation.
CALM, Calmodulin Belongs calcium-binding proteins, regulation of nuclear transport.
KCNA5 Voltage-dependent potassium ion permeability, has a role in regulating the secretion of insulin
PLEC1, Plectin Intermediate filament binding protein
STML2, Stomatin 2 Colocalized at intercellular junctions and regulated gap junctions and lipid domain organization.
Other epithelial proteins  
Name Functions
CROCC, Ciliary rootlet A cytoskeletal-like structure in ciliated cells
DCD, Dermcidin Displays antimicrobial activity thus limiting infection by potential pathogens, such as E.coli and S.aureus.
ECHB Participates in lipid metabolism.
EPIPL, Epiplakin A cytoskeletal linker protein, interactions between epiplakin and intermediate filaments
GNDS, Ral/RalBP1 Plays a role in endocytosis and vesicle sorting and migration.
K1C18, Cytokeratin 18 A subunit of intermediate filament, one of the three major components of the cytoskeleton
MARCO Scavenger receptor, a major mediator of non-opsonized E. coli phagocytosis clearance of bacteria in vivo
MYCB2 Mediates ubiquitination and subsequent proteasomal degradation of target proteins
S100P Overexpressed in epithelium in psoriasis, wound healing, skin cancer, inflammation, calcium-binding
TBA8, Alpha-tubulin The major constituent of microtubules, one of the three major components of the cytoskeleton.
