Allergy to mosquitoes and mites is common in certain geographic areas and both have important allergens such as tropomyosin that can lead to cross-reactions between them. A study has been published in Clinical Experimental Allergy which shows that the mosquito Aedes aegypti and the mite Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus share regions in their tropomyosin that justify the cross-response of antibodies and T cells.
