The HLA (Human Leucocyte Antigen) system is the name given to the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) in man. The MHC complex is located on the short arm of the chromosome 6 and encodes three groups of molecules designated MHC class I, class II and class III. Coded by 5 loci (DM, DO, DP, DQ and DR) of the D locus, HLA class II molecules are also called HLA-DM, HLA-DO, HLA-DP, HLA-DQ and HLA-DR antigens. The HLA class II molecules like class I molecules, are composed of non-covalently associated α/β heteterodimers. On HLA class II, both heavy (α) and light (β) chain with a molecular weight of 31-33 kDa and 26-29 kDa respectively span the cell membrane. The two immunoglobulin-like domains proximal to the cell membrane (α2 and β2) support the two polymorphic amino-terminal domains (α1 and β1) distal to the membrane which constitute a part of the "antigen presenting site". HLA class II molecules are involved in the regulation of immune response whose expression is limited to antigen presenting cells, i.e. B lymphocytes, monocytes / macrophages, dendritic and Langerhans cells of the skin.
