Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) part 114

hla protein 1


An immense number of studies based on different ethnicities  have identified HLA class II associations with systemic lupus erythematosus especially the haplotypes containing DR2 and/or DR3 are directly involved in disease pathogenesis, clinical presentation, lupus nephritis and production and specificity of autoantibodies. Studies in European  populations identified a potential association of the class II HLA-DRB1 alleles HLA-DRB1*0801, -*0301 and -*1501 with systemic lupus erythematosus. Two of these alleles (HLA-DRB1*0301 and -*1501) have also been identified in a recent study  of the IMAGEN consortioum  using high-density SNP typing across the major histocompatibility complex and in other populations.
