Researchers said that cat hair does not actually have allergenic properties.
The fact is that the hair of these animals serves as a reservoir where allergenic proteins accumulate.
Therefore, in reality, there are no cat breeds, as scientists say that do not cause allergies.
Experts emphasize that cat hair does not have allergenic properties, but there are a lot of allergens in saliva, sebum, in secretions and desquamated skin flakes.
At the moment, academics want to create a cat breed that will block the production of the allergenic protein Fel d1, RIA Novosti reported.
