allergene annotation

Hi All
I have to annotate plant genes described as "allergenic peptides" in pFam these
genes are described as:
"Allergies are hypersensitivity reactions of the immune system to specific
substances called allergens (such as pollen, stings, drugs, or food) that, in
most people, result in no symptoms. A nomenclature system has been established
for antigens (allergens) that cause IgE-mediated atopic allergies in humans..."

So, where may I annotate these allergenes? It is GO:0016068 (type I
hypersensitivity) the right term? 
Thanks in advance.
Alessandro
