Flowchart summarizing the organization of the review. Identifying allergenic mite proteins typically involves the discovery of a candidate protein (generally based on its ability to bind IgE from sera of allergic patients) followed by confirmation of the isolated protein’s ability to induce an allergic response. The major group 1 mite allergens are serine proteases, which inspired efforts to identify additional proteases with potential allergenicity
