HLA-DQ1 is a serotype that covers a broad range of HLA-DQ haplotypes. Historically it was identified as a DR-like alpha chain called DC1; later, it was among 3 types DQw1 (later DQ1, and split into DQ5 and DQ6), DQw2 and DQw3. Of these three serotyping specificities only DQw1 recognized DQ alpha chain. The serotype is positive in individuals who bear the DQA1*01 alleles. The most frequently found within this group are: DQA1*0101, *0102, *0103, and *0104. In the illustration on the right, DQ1 serotyping antibodies recognizes the DQ α (magenta), where antibodies to DQA1* gene products bind variable regions close to the peptide binding pocket. The serotyping efficiency of DQ1 recognition relative to DQ5 and DQ6 is listed below. Since DQ1 recognizes alpha, the DQ5 and DQ6 recognition are to beta chain. Meaning that DQ1 is corecognized with DQ5 and DQ6. The table to the left shows some of the serotyping efficiencies. Efficient recognition of a genotyped allele approaches 100%. Compared to DQ2 ...
Between July 2001 and May 2003, 187 mother and neonate pairs participated in this study. A total of 184 neonates completed the HLA-DR and -DQ genotyping. The frequencies of HLA-DR and -DQ genes, maternal sensitization, sIgE , 100 IU/ml, and cIgE ≥ 0.35 IU/ml were not different between the four areas. No association was found between cIgE and HLA-DR and -DQ genes or atopic symptoms. Physician diagnosed atopic symptoms were associated with the HLA-DQB1*02 allele (X2= 10.38, p,0.0013). After adjusting for possible potential risk factors, the sIgE , 100 IU/ml (Odds Ratio (OR) =5.01, 95% ci= [1.22, 27.14]), and HLA-DQB1*02 (OR = 8.09, 95% CI= [1.91, 36.74]) were risk factors for atopic symptoms in children at one year follow-up.. ...
At first glance, an association of a CD4 T cell-mediated disease with HLA class II gene products, whose function is to present peptides to CD4 T cells, appears easily explainable. Over the years, the most obvious, nonexclusive theories have been tested: instability and poor peptide binding of diabetogenic HLA class II molecules (6), unique peptide repertoire of the same molecules (7), T cells focused on the recognition of HLA-DQβ57 (8), failed thymic selection of autoreactive T cells (9), and abnormal T-cell binding to autoimmune peptide-MHC complexes (10). While all of those might bear truth and give some level of understanding of what the β57 residue might do, none could formally associate the mutation to a molecular mechanism leading to diabetes. The closest one to explaining the association of the same mutation with a disease was in the context of celiac disease, where the same HLA-DQ molecules are strongly predisposing to onset and also promote a frequent association with type 1 diabetes ...
CELI : LABType applies Luminex technology to the reverse sequence-specific oligonucleotide (SSO) DNA typing method. First, target DNA is PCR-amplified using a group-specific primer. The PCR product is biotinylated, which allows it to be detected using R-phycoerythrin-conjugated streptavidin. The PCR product is denatured and allowed to rehybridize to complementary DNA probes conjugated to fluorescently coded microspheres. A flow analyzer identifies the fluorescent intensity of phycoerythrin on each microsphere. The HLA Class II allele or allele groups of the sample is determined by the positive and negative bead IDs using a computer software program. The assignment of the HLA typing is based on the reaction pattern compared to patterns associated with published HLA gene sequences.(Package insert: One Lambda, LABType SSO Typing)
In diseases with a strong association with an HLA haplotype, identification of relevant T cell epitopes may allow alteration of the pathologic process. In this report we use a reverse immunogenetic approach to predict possible HLA class II-restricted T cell epitopes by using complete pool sequencing data. Data from HLA-DR2(B1*1501), -DR3(B1*0301), -DQ2(A1*0501, B1*0201), and -DQ8(A1*0301, B1*0302) alleles were used by a computer program that searches a candidate protein to predict ligands with a relatively high probability of being processed and presented. This approach successfully identified both known T cell epitopes and eluted single peptides from the parent protein. Furthermore, the program identified ligands from proteins in which the binding motif of the HLA molecule was unable to do so. When the information from the nonbinding N- and C-terminal regions in the pool sequence was removed, the ability to predict several ligands was markedly reduced, particularly for the HLA-DQ alleles. This suggests

Coeliac disease (CD) development involves genetic (HLA-DQ2/DQ8) and environmental factors. Herein, the influence of the HLA-DQ genotype on the gut colonization process of breast-fed children was determined. A cohort of 20 newborns, with at least one first-degree relative with CD, were classified according to their HLA-DQ genotype into high, intermediate and low genetic risk groups, showing 24-28%, 7-8% and less than 1% probability to develop CD, respectively. Faecal microbiota was analysed at 7 days, 1 and 4 months of childrens age by fluorescence in situ hybridization. When considering all data, Gram-negative bacteria and Bacteroides-Prevotella group proportions were higher (P,0.05) in the high than in the intermediate and low genetic risk groups. E. coli, Streptococcus-Lactococcus, E. rectale-C. coccoides, sulphate-reducing bacteria, C. lituseburense and C. histolyticum group proportions were also significantly higher (P,0.05) in the high than in the low genetic risk group.

HLA DR3-DQ2 is double serotype that specifically recognizes cells from individuals who carry a multigene HLA DR, DQ haplotype. Certain HLA DR and DQ genes have known involvement in autoimmune diseases. DR3-DQ2, a multigene haplotype, stands out in prominence because it is a factor in several prominent diseases, namely coeliac disease and juvenile diabetes. In coeliac disease, the DR3-DQ2 haplotype is associated with highest risk for disease in first degree relatives, highest risk is conferred by DQA1*0501:DQB1*0201 homozygotes and semihomozygotes of DQ2, and represents the overwhelming majority of risk. HLA DR3-DQ2 encodes DQ2.5cis isoform of HLA-DQ, this isoform is described frequently as the DQ2 isoform, but in actuality there are two major DQ2 isoform. The DQ2.5 isoform, however, is many times more frequently associated with autoimmune disease, and as a result to contribution of DQ2.2 is often ignored. The frequency of both diseases changes with respect to both the environment (diet) and ...
Results 36/120 patients were excluded from analysis due to incomplete tTG and TPO testing. 84 patients with CD had sequential TTG and TPO analysis (mean age 48, 25 males, and median duration of follow-up 3 years). At baseline 19/84 (22.6%) had positive TPO (normal ,50 iu/ml) compared to 18/84 (21.4%) at follow-up. On analysis of tTG with unpaired t test, individuals with positive TPO had a trend towards higher tTG antibodies at baseline (229 vs 174, p=0.08) and a significantly higher tTG at follow-up (96 vs 44, p=0.03). We did not find any significant difference between TPO titres at diagnosis and follow-up (Mean TPO titre; at diagnosis=340, at follow-up=274, p=0.68). HLA status was tested on 88/120 patients (21/88 HLA DQ2 homozygotes, 61/88 HLA DQ2 heterozygotes and 6/88 were HLA DQ 8) Patients who were heterozygous for HLA DQ2 were significantly more likely than patients who were homozygous for HLA DQ8 to have raised TPO titres (21/61 heterozygotes were TPO positive compared to 2/21 ...
Background: We previously found that the introduction of small quantities of gluten at 4-6 mo of age did not reduce the risk of celiac disease (CD) in a group of high-risk children. However, the consumption of high amounts of gluten early in life has been suggested to increase CD risk.Objective: The aim of this study was to evaluate this hypothesis by using data from the previous study of the PreventCD trial (www.preventcd.com).Design: Gluten intake was prospectively quantified by using specific food records between 11 and 36 mo of age in 715 children positive for the human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-DQ2 and/or HLA-DQ8 from 5 European countries ...

Genetic Typing. With the exception of DQ2 (*02:01) which has a 98% detection capability, serotyping has drawbacks in relative accuracy. In addition, for many HLA studies genetic typing does not offer that much greater advantage over serotyping, but in the case of DQ there is a need for precise identification of HLA-DQB1 and HLA-DQA1 which cannot be provided by serotyping. Isoform functionality is dependent on αβ composition. Most studies indicate a chromosomal linkage between disease causing DQA1 and DQB1 genes. Therefore, the DQA1, α, component is as important as DQB1. An example of this is DQ2, DQ2 mediates Coeliac disease and Type 1 diabetes but only if the α5 subunit is present. This subunit can be encoded by either DQA1*05:01 or DQA1*05:05. When the DQ2 encoding β-chain gene is on the same chromosome as the α5 subunit isoform, then individuals who have this chromosome have a much higher risk of these two disease. When DQA1 and DQB1 alleles are linked in this way they form a haplotype. ...

Gluten sensitivity is the only 100% confirmed cause of any autoimmune disease. Type 1 diabetes, like celiac disease, is an autoimmune disease. The HLA-DQ genotype risks for type 1 diabetes (juvenile diabetes) are the same for celiac disease. Gluten Free Society suggests that anyone who has a diagnosis of Type 1 Diabetes without a diagnosis of celiac disease avoid gluten and other grain based foods.. Remember the basis of how genes work. Gluten positive HLA-DQ genes means that you should avoid grain to prevent the onset of illness. Having the positive HLA-DQ genes for type I diabetes or celiac disease does not mean that you will develop these conditions. However; gluten positive genes are related to over 190 conditions. Diabetes and celiac disease are just 2 diseases in a long list of problems that can develop.. If you are confused on this issue, we highly recommend you watch this video on gluten sensitivity.. If you have been diagnosed with Type I diabetes and want to determine your HLA-DQ ...
Compared with healthy controls (odds ratios analyses), SLE-SS and pSS patients displayed a statistically increased frequency of the DRB1*0301-*1104 heterozygote genotype, whereas SLE-noSS patients had an increased frequency of the genotypes DQA1*0401-*0501, DRB1*0301-*1501 and DQB1*0201-*0602. Such statistical associations were stronger for genotypes than single alleles. The analysis of haplotype estimated frequencies (by EM algorithm) had revealed an increased frequency of the DRB1*0301-DQA1*0501-DQB1*0201 haplotype, as well as of the extended haplotype DRB1*0301-DQA1*0501-DQB1*0201/DRB1*1104-DQA1*0501-DQB1*0301 in SLE-SS and pSS patients. In contrast, SLE-noSS patients had an increased estimated frequency of the DRB1*1501-DQA1*0102-DQB1*0602 haplotype. In SLE-SS patients, positive associations of the DQB1*0201 allele with anti-dsDNA (strong) and of DQA1*0501 with anti-La/SSB (marginal) were observed. In SLE-noSS, DQB1*0301-*0602 was strongly positively associated with interstitial lung ...
BACKGROUND: Susceptibility to celiac disease is essentially restricted to carriers of specific HLA DQA1 and DQB1 alleles. We have developed a semi-automated sequence specific primer (SSP) PCR method for clinical HLA typing and compared the test results with those from a commercial method. METHODS: Primers for each DQA1 and DQB1 allele group were included in our PCR-SSP reaction to allow differentiation of homozygous from heterozygous carriers of risk alleles. Primers detecting the tightly linked DRB1*04, *03, *07 and *09 alleles were included to resolve potentially ambiguous results. Fluorescently labeled PCR products of 119 clinical samples were analyzed by capillary electrophoresis, and results were compared to those previously obtained from the DELFIA® Type 1 Diabetes Genetic Predisposition assay. RESULTS: The risk assessment derived from the two methods was 100% concordant. One previously unreported haplotype was detected and haplotype assignments in two of the 119 samples were improved ...
Researchers from Dublin, Ireland, investigated the natural course of hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection among a cohort of Irish women.. All individuals were infected with the HCV genotype 1b via contaminated anti-D immunoglobulin in 1977.. The team assessed the clinical status of 87 polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-positive and 68 PCR-negative women at diagnosis (1994/95). This was also conducted after 4-5 years of follow-up (21/22 years after inoculation). Other features investigated included: histological status/progression, psychosocial impact of HCV infection, extrahepatic manifestations, and HLA class II associations.. The most common symptoms reported were fatigue and arthralgia. Furthermore, 77% of women fell within the clinical range for psychological distress. A history of icteric hepatitis was reported in 21% of PCR-negative and 3% of PCR-positive women after inoculation. The mean histological activity index/fibrosis scores of PCR-positive and negative women were 4.1/1.1 and 2.1/0.15 at ...

How will this reality shape the diagnosis and treatment in the country?
HLA-DQA1 belongs to the HLA class II alpha chain paralogues. The class II molecule is a heterodimer consisting of an alpha (DQA) and a beta chain (DQB), both anchored in the membrane. It plays a central role in the immune system by presenting peptides derived from extracellular proteins. Class II molecules are expressed in antigen presenting cells (APC: B Lymphocytes, dendritic cells, macrophages). The alpha chain is approximately 33-35 kDa. It is encoded by 5 exons; exon 1 encodes the leader peptide, exons 2 and 3 encode the two extracellular domains, and exon 4 encodes the transmembrane domain and the cytoplasmic tail. Within the DQ molecule both the alpha chain and the beta chain contain the polymorphisms specifying the peptide binding specificities, resulting in up to four different molecules. Typing for these polymorphisms is routinely done for bone marrow transplantation. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008 ...

Results CD was diagnosed in 4 of 95 patients with JIA (4.2%), a rate significantly higher compared with controls (p,0.02) and 14 times higher than in the general population. Twenty-six patients (27.4%) had one of the variants of the risk genotypes. All four patients diagnosed with CD had a HLA-DQ2.5 genotype: one was homozygote, the remainder heterozygote. Twenty-two patients are, judging by their HLA genotypes, at risk of developing CD and require repeated serological screening. None of the 69 patients without HLA-DQ2/DQ8 genotypes had CD-specific antibodies. Screening with HLA genotyping becomes cheaper than screening without after the second determination. ...

In recent years the pace of discovery of genetic associations with type I diabetes (T1D) has accelerated, with the total number of confirmed loci, including the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) region, reaching 43. However, much of the deciphering of the associations at these, and the established T1D loci, has yet to be performed in sufficient numbers of samples or with sufficient markers. Here, 257 single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) have been genotyped in 19 candidate genes (INS, PTPN22, IL2RA, CTLA4, IFIH1, SUMO4, VDR, PAX4, OAS1, IRS1, IL4, IL4R, IL13, IL12B, CEACAM21, CAPSL, Q7Z4c4(5Q), FOXP3, EFHB) in 2300 affected sib-pair families and tested for association with T1D as part of the Type I Diabetes Genetics Consortiums candidate gene study. The study had approximately 80% power at alpha=0.002 and a minor allele frequency of 0.2 to detect an effect with a relative risk (RR) of 1.20, which drops to just 40% power for a RR of 1.15. At the INS gene, rs689 (-23 HphI) was the most associated
Accurate prediction of antigen presentation by human leukocyte antigen (HLA) class II molecules would be valuable for vaccine development and cancer immunotherapies. Current computational methods trained on in vitro binding data are limited by insufficient training data and algorithmic constraints. Here we describe MARIA (major histocompatibility complex analysis with recurrent integrated architecture; https://maria.stanford.edu/ ), a multimodal recurrent neural network for predicting the likelihood of antigen presentation from a gene of interest in the context of specific HLA class II alleles. In addition to in vitro binding measurements, MARIA is trained on peptide HLA ligand sequences identified by mass spectrometry, expression levels of antigen genes and protease cleavage signatures. Because it leverages these diverse training data and our improved machine learning framework, MARIA (area under the curve = 0.89-0.92) outperformed existing methods
Foods most often related to digestive discomforts are foods derived from cereals and dairy products. It is estimated that approximately 75% of the population loses the ability to digest lactose at some point in their life. The loss of enzymatic activity is associated with age, and a reduction in this activity can be observed from age 3-5, although it is more common in adulthood. Intolerance to primary lactose or acquired hypolactasia is the most common cause of lactose intolerance in adults and it has a genetic origin. The celiac disease is caused by gluten intolerance, which is a group of proteins present in most cereals. Gluten intolerance is determined by studying the risk haplotypes HLA-DQ2 and HLA-DQ8. In 90% of the cases, patients with celiac disease are HLA-DQ2 positive, while the remaining 10% of the patients have allelic variants that encode HLA-DQ8 without HLA-DQ2 (6%) or a single HLA-DQ2 allele. Therefore, the absence of the haplotypes studied makes the diagnosis of celiac disease ...

Despite more than two decades of use, the optimal maintenance dose of tacrolimus for kidney transplant recipients is unknown. We hypothesized that HLA class II de novo donor-specific antibody (dnDSA) development correlates with tacrolimus trough levels and the recipients individualized alloimmune risk determined by HLA-DR/DQ epitope mismatch. A cohort of 596 renal transplant recipients with 50,011 serial tacrolimus trough levels had HLA-DR/DQ eplet mismatch determined using HLAMatchmaker software. We analyzed the frequency of tacrolimus trough levels below a series of thresholds ,6 ng/ml and the mean tacrolimus levels before dnDSA development in the context of HLA-DR/DQ eplet mismatch ...
