The most striking feature of major histocompatibility complex (MHC)-encoded molecules is their extensive variability (for a thorough review see Klein 1986). The interaction of MHC proteins with T cells during antigen presentation and recognition is crucial for the course of the immune response (Klein 1986). The heterodimeric HLA-DR molecules are the most abundantly expressed MHC class II molecules in man. Their high degree of polymorphism is entirely due to the variability of the DR~ chains… Expand
