Reproducible association with type 1 diabetes in the extended class I region of the major histocompatibility complex


The high-risk human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-DRB1, DQA1 and DQB1 alleles cannot explain the entire type 1 diabetes (T1D) association observed within the extended major histocompatibility complex. We have earlier identified an association with D6S2223, located 2.3 Mb telomeric of HLA-A, on the DRB1*03-DQA1*0501-DQB1*0201 haplotype, and this study aimed to… (More)
