The human major histocompatibility complex includes the DP, DQ, and DR subregions, each of which contains at least one alpha chain gene and two beta chain genes. The products of the alpha chain gene and a beta chain gene from a given subregion combine to form a heterodimer which is found predominantly on the surface of immunocompetent cells, and is(More)
The HLA-DR beta region of at least two members of the DRw52 (MT2) supertypic group (DR3, DR5, DRw6, and DRw8) has recently been shown to contain three beta-chain genes--beta I, beta II, and beta III, ordered in the direction of transcription. beta III is apparently a duplication of beta I. Both beta I and beta III are expressed, whereas beta II is a(More)
