Gene : HLA-DQA2 Homo sapiens

Name  ? major histocompatibility complex, class II, DQ alpha 2 Cytological Location  6p21.32
Brief Description  major histocompatibility complex, class II, DQ alpha 2
description  This gene belongs to the HLA class II alpha chain family. The encoded protein forms a heterodimer with a class II beta chain. It is located in intracellular vesicles and plays a central role in the peptide loading of MHC class II molecules by helping to release the CLIP molecule from the peptide binding site. Class II molecules are expressed in antigen presenting cells (B lymphocytes, dendritic cells, macrophages) and are used to present antigenic peptides on the cell surface to be recognized by CD4 T-cells.
