Immunoinformatics tools were used to predict human leukocyte antigen (HLA) class II-restricted T cell epitopes within the envelope glycoproteins and nucleocapsid proteins of Ebola virus (EBOV) and Sudan virus (SUDV) and the structural proteins of Venezuelan equine encephalitis virus (VEEV). Selected epitopes were tested for binding to soluble HLA molecules representing 5 class II alleles (DRB1*0101, DRB1*0301, DRB1*0401, DRB1*0701, and DRB1*1501). All but one of the 25 tested peptides bound to at least one of the DRB1 alleles, and 4 of the peptides bound at least moderately or weakly to all 5 DRB1 alleles...

INTRODUCTION: Incidence of childhood-onset type 1 diabetes mellitus in the Canary Islands is the highest reported so far in Spain, and among the highest worldwide. The HLA region accounts for approximately half the genetic risk of type 1 diabetes. Our aim was to assess distribution of high-risk and protective HLA haplotypes in the Canarian families included in the T1DGC, as compared to the rest of Spain. METHODS: The T1DGC study, an international project to study the genetics and pathogenesis of type 1 diabetes, enrolled more than 3000 families with type 1 diabetes worldwide...

Tubulointerstitial nephritis and uveitis (TINU) syndrome is due to a disregulation of cell-mediated immunity and genetical predisposition due a particular molecular characterization. We report the case of a 50-year-old woman who was admitted for acute renal failure. She had recently taken flurbiprofen for 10 d for recurrent bronchitis. A renal biopsy revealed acute tubulointerstitial nephritis. Prednisone was started and prognosis was favorable. Three months later the patient developed transitory blurred vision...

BACKGROUND: Autoantibodies to 21-hydroxylase (21OH-AA) precede the onset of autoimmune Addison's disease (AD) and are found in 1.5% of individuals with type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM). The greatest genetic risk for both disorders is found in the major histocompatibility complex (MHC), suggesting a common pathophysiology between AD and T1DM. Screening for 21OH-AA in newly diagnosed T1DM patients is a valuable prognostic tool, made stronger when MHC genotype is considered. METHODS: The Type 1 Diabetes Genetics Consortium has collected genotype data in T1DM subjects with tissue-specific autoantibody typing...

BACKGROUND: Antigen-derived HLA class I-restricted peptides can generate specific CD8(+) T-cell responses in vivo and are therefore often used as vaccines for patients with cancer. However, only occasional objective clinical responses have been reported suggesting the necessity of CD4(+) T-cell help and possibly antibodies for the induction of an effective anti-tumor immunity in vivo. The SSX2 gene encodes the cancer testis antigen (CTA) HOM-MEL-40/SSX2, which is frequently expressed in a wide spectrum of cancers...

Despite the independent segregation of genes encoding killer immunoglobulin-like receptor (KIR) and human leukocyte antigen (HLA), there is some evidence of some kind of co-evolution. Therefore, one could expect reduced KIR diversity within the HLA restricted population. A total of 41 unrelated individuals homozygous for ancestral HLA haplotype AH8.1 (HLA-A*0101-Cw*0701-B*0801-DRB1*0301-DQB1*0201) were genotyped for KIRs. Over all, 14 different genotypes were identified. The KIR genes and genotypes repertoire generally mirror the published frequencies in Caucasians...

PURPOSE: Vogt-Koyanagi-Harada (VKH) disease is an immune-mediated disorder with autoimmune insult directed against antigens associated with melanocytes. The genetic predisposition among VKH has not been explored in Saudi Arabia. So, the purpose of this study was to investigate the association of human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-DRB1 alleles to VKH patients and to clarify the molecular genetic mechanism underlying the susceptibility or resistance to VKH disease. METHODS: Genomic DNA from a total of 30 patients with VKH and 29 control subjects was extracted from peripheral blood, and HLA-DRB1 alleles were typed by polymerase chain reaction and sequence based typing (SBT)...

BACKGROUND: Initiation and regulation of immune responses in humans involves recognition of peptides presented by human leukocyte antigen class II (HLA-II) molecules. These peptides (HLA-II T-cell epitopes) are increasingly important as research targets for the development of vaccines and immunotherapies. HLA-II peptide binding studies involve multiple overlapping peptides spanning individual antigens, as well as complete viral proteomes. Antigen variation in pathogens and tumor antigens, and extensive polymorphism of HLA molecules increase the number of targets for screening studies...

The Plasmodium falciparum circumsporozoite protein is considered a major antimalarial-vaccine target due to its involvement in sporozoite invasion of mosquito's salivary glands and human hepatocytes. The 4383, 4388 and 4389 CSP-conserved high activity hepatocyte binding peptides and their modified analogues were synthesised and their immunogenicity was tested in Aotus monkeys. Peptide 4388 modified analogues induced higher and more permanent antibody titers against sporozoites in approximately 40% of immunised monkeys; whilst peptides 4383 and 4389 modified analogues elicited high, long-lasting antibody titers as well as short-lived antibodies...

Goodpasture's disease, an "organ-specific" autoimmune disease is manifest by rapidly progressive glomerulonephritis and pulmonary hemorrhage. Studies into the pathogenesis of this disease have shed light on the autoantigen (the non-collagenous domain of the alpha3 chain of type IV collagen, alpha3(IV)NC1) and its epitopes, as well as the involvement of autoantibodies and cellular effectors in disease. The discovery of alpha3(IV)NC1 lead to studies that defined the structure and biology of type IV collagen and are defining B and T cell epitopes...

Variation in human major histocompatibility genes may influence the risk of squamous cell cervical cancer (SCC) by altering the efficiency of the T-cell-mediated immune response to human papillomavirus (HPV) antigens. We used high-resolution methods to genotype human leukocyte antigen (HLA) class I (A, B, and Cw) and class II (DRB1 and DQB1) loci in 544 women with SCC and 542 controls. Recognizing that HLA molecules are codominantly expressed, we focused on co-occurring alleles. Among 137 allele combinations present at >5% in the case or control groups, 36 were significantly associated with SCC risk...

Quantitative structure-activity relationship (QSAR) analysis is a cornerstone of modern informatics. Predictive computational models of peptide-major histocompatibility complex (MHC)-binding affinity based on QSAR technology have now become important components of modern computational immunovaccinology. Historically, such approaches have been built around semiqualitative, classification methods, but these are now giving way to quantitative regression methods. We review three methods--a 2D-QSAR additive-partial least squares (PLS) and a 3D-QSAR comparative molecular similarity index analysis (CoMSIA) method--which can identify the sequence dependence of peptide-binding specificity for various class I MHC alleles from the reported binding affinities (IC50) of peptide sets...

The aims of this study were to summarize results on the association of HLA-DRB1 with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in Asians and to determine if the shared epitope (SE) hypothesis could explain the meta-analysis results. Among the papers published between January 1987 and July 2006 on RA susceptibility in Asian-Mongoloid populations (Korean, Japanese, Chinese, and Thai), 12 were selected for the metaanalysis. Mongoloid-Asian patients with RA had significantly higher frequencies of HLA-DRB1*0101, *0401, *0410, and *1001 than controls (OR 1...

HLA class I and class II associations were examined in relation to measles virus-specific cytokine responses in 339 healthy children who had received two doses of live attenuated measles vaccine. Multivariate linear regression modeling analysis revealed suggestions of associations between the expression of DPA1*0201 (p=0.03) and DPA1*0202 (p=0.09) alleles and interleukin-2 (IL-2) cytokine production (global p-value 0.06). Importantly, cytokine production and DQB1 allele associations (global p-value 0.04) revealed that the alleles with the strongest association with IL-10 secretion were DQB1*0302 (p=0...
