Myasthenia gravis (MG) is a sporadic disorder that has been increasingly linked to inherited genetic factors. Previous studies have demonstrated that human leukocyte antigen (HLA) plays an important role in the pathogenesis of MG. We determined the genotypes of the HLA-A, B, and DRB1 alleles in 257 southern Chinese Han MG patients using polymerase chain reaction sequence-based typing (PCR-SBT). The allele frequencies in the MG patients were compared to 292 healthy controls using the case-control method. HLA-A*0207, HLA-B*4601, HLA-DRB1*0403, HLA-DRB1*0901, and HLA-DRB1*1602 were more frequent in juvenile ocular MG patients than controls...

High-risk mucosal types of human papillomavirus (HPV) cause anogenital and oropharyngeal cancers, whereas cutaneous types (e.g. HPV8 and 77) are suspected to be involved in non-melanoma skin cancer. The antibody response to HPVs is a key determinant of protective immunity, but not all infected individuals seroconvert. Genetic variability of the host may have large impact on seroconversion. A previous genome-wide association study (GWAS) has identified a susceptibility locus (rs41270488) for HPV8 seropositivity within the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) region...

Microminipigs are extremely small-sized, novel miniature pigs that were recently developed for medical research. The inbred Microminipigs with defined swine leukocyte antigen (SLA) haplotypes are expected to be useful for allo- and xenotransplantation studies and also for association analyses between SLA haplotypes and immunological traits. To establish SLA-defined Microminipig lines, we characterized the polymorphic SLA alleles for three class I (SLA-1, SLA-2 and SLA-3) and two class II (SLA-DRB1 and SLA-DQB1) genes of 14 parental Microminipigs using a high-resolution nucleotide sequence-based typing method...

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...

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a common autoimmune disorder of the central nervous system. Recent studies have shown that the HLA-DRB1 and DQB1 alleles are associated with MS susceptibility and severity. However, this is controversial in different population studies. In the present study, the roles of HLA-DRB1 and DQB1 alleles and the amino acids were investigated on disease risk and severity in 120 Iranian patients with MS and 120 controls. Our findings indicate that the DRB1*1501 allele (OR = 3.203 P = 0.001), the DRB1*1501-DQB1*0602 haplotype (OR = 7...

Selective IgA deficiency (IgAD; serum IgA<0.07 g/l) is the most common form of human primary immune deficiency, affecting approximately 1∶600 individuals in populations of Northern European ancestry. The polygenic nature of IgAD is underscored by the recent identification of several new risk genes in a genome-wide association study. Among the characterized susceptibility loci, the association with specific HLA haplotypes represents the major genetic risk factor for IgAD. Despite the robust association, the nature and location of the causal variants in the HLA region remains unknown...
