Modulation of HLA-G expression in human thymic and amniotic epithelial cells.


Expression of the nonclassical HLA class I antigen, HLA-G, is tightly regulated. HLA-G physiologic expression is mostly restricted to some placental and thymic cell types. Only few established cell lines express HLA-G in vitro. Cytokine-induced expression of HLA-G is hardly observed and also depends on the cell lineage. We assessed expression and cytokine… (More)
