TY - JOUR. T1 - HLA-DQ Typing Kits in Diagnosis and Screening for Celiac Disease. AU - Rouvroye, Maxine D.. AU - van Zijtveld, Sander. AU - Bonnet, Petra. AU - Spierings, Eric. AU - Bontkes, Hetty J.. PY - 2019/6/1. Y1 - 2019/6/1. N2 - Aim: Celiac disease (CD) is strongly associated with HLA-DQ2.2, HLA-DQ2.5, and HLA-DQ8. Up to 99.7% of all CD patients are positive for either one or two of these genetic markers, demonstrating a high negative predictive value. This has led to the development of diagnostic kits that, instead of providing a full HLA-DQ typing, detect only these three HLA-DQ types. Our aim was to compare three different kits for their performance, utilization, and costs. Because 0.4-3.6% of all CD patients test positive for HLA-DQ7 and negative for the aforementioned types, information provided by the kits regarding DQ7 alpha and beta chains was evaluated as well. Materials and Methods: Fifty DNA samples previously typed with the SSCP method were analyzed using three commercial ...
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.

Although the allelic distribution at the DPB1 locus showed no significant variation between patients and controls, there was heterogeneity in the distribution of DR-DQ haplotypes where the frequency of the DRB1*0801-DQA1*0401/0601-DQB1*04 haplotype was significantly increased in the patients, suggesting it confers susceptibility to this disease. Two other haplotypes, DRB1*1501-DQA1*0102-DQB1*0602 and DRB1*1302-DQA1*0102-DQB1*0604, were significantly reduced in the patients, ...

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 ...
Among the public health relevant disorders, Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) is a degenerative disease affecting almost 2 million Americans. It is characterized by the loss of insulin-producing b-cells due to a T cell-mediated autoimmune response. The risk to develop T1D is HLA associated. HLA-DQ8-DR4 has been identified as the most prevalent HLA haplotype in the Caucasian T1D population. Although DQ8 has been demonstrated to be the primary genetic determinant of disease susceptibility, its predisposing effect is likely modulated by the expression of closely linked DR4 alleles. As one of hypotheses to explain the role of DR4 molecules in T1D etiology, the peptide competition model holds that DR4 competes to bind diabetogenic peptides with DQ8 and thus affects DQ8-restricted autoreactive CD4 T cell responses. However, the evidence of the competition is insufficient due to the lack of detection reagents and the difficulty of segregating the expression of DR4 from DQ8. In this study, we investigated the ...

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. ...

Other HLA-encoded susceptibility determinants: The DR and DQ genes cannot completely explain the association between T1DM and the HLA gene region. Teasing out the contribution of other HLA loci, however, is complicated by the high level of linkage disequilibrium within the region, combined with the strong effects of DR and DQ. A number of different approaches have been employed to address this issue, including the analysis of case/control data matched for specific DR-DQ combinations, investigation of the transmission to affected and unaffected offspring of heterozygous markers from parents homozygous for DR-DQ alleles, conditional logistic regression and conditional haplotype analysis..

As a result, we followed the GM CSF based mostly differentiation protocol of Akagawa, et al., made to provide mono cyte derived M by using a distinctly AM like phenotype. The two AM and GM M happen to be proven to provide decrease levels of H2O2, express higher ranges of catalase and therefore are a lot more resistant to H2O2 toxicity when in comparison to M CSF derived M. Furthermore, AM and GM M express HLA DQ and are resistant to HIV infection, but prone to Myco bacterium tuberculosis infection. Finally, we are confident that ...

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 ...
The RV144 vaccine produced two Env-specific antibody responses that correlated with HIV-1 acquisition (3). Because HLA class II molecules are important in the initiation of antibody responses, we hypothesized that variation in HLA class II genes might influence response to the vaccine. DRB1, DQB1, and DPB1 loci were typed in the RV144 vaccine recipients, and the alleles found were tested for an effect on magnitude of vaccine-induced responses and for interactions with the two vaccine-elicited immune responses that significantly affected HIV-1 acquisition. Both Env-specific antibody responses previously identified were found to correlate with HIV-1 acquisition only in the presence of specific HLA class II alleles.. Haynes et al. (3) observed that high levels of IgA antibody binding to Env correlated with reduced vaccine efficacy that was not distinguishable from the placebos in RV144. Here, we report that it is only in the presence of a single allele, DQB1*06, that high levels of Env-specific IgA ...
article{dd946182-cc9b-45da-80fe-824daa64be35, abstract = {,p,Most patients with celiac disease are positive for either HLA-DQA1*05:01-DQB1*02 (DQ2.5) or DQA1*03:01-DQB1*03:02 (DQ8). Remaining few patients are usually DQA1*02:01-DQB1*02 (DQ2.2) carriers. Screenings of populations with high frequencies of these HLA-DQA1-DQB1 haplotypes report a 1% to 3% celiac disease prevalence. The aim was to determine the prevalence of HLA-DQ risk haplotypes for celiac disease in Ethiopian children. Dried blood spots collected from 1193 children from the Oromia regional state of Ethiopia were genotyped for HLA-DQA1 and DQB1 genotyping using an asymmetric polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and a subsequent hybridization of allele-specific probes. As references, 2000 previously HLA-genotyped children randomly selected from the general population in Sweden were included. DQ2.2 was the most common haplotype and found in 15.3% of Ethiopian children, which was higher compared with 6.7% of Swedish references (P ...

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 ...

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. ...
Celiac disease (DC) is a permanent intolerance to gluten characterized by an inflammatory reaction in the mucosa of the small intestine caused by an immune response that hinders the absorption of macro and micronutrients. The most frequent symptoms of CD are weight loss and appetite, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal distension and pain, loss of muscle mass, delayed growth and depression, among others. CD occurs in individuals with a genetic predisposition. About 90% of patients with celiac disease are HLA-DQ2 positive, while the others have allelic variants that encode HLA-DQ8 without HLADQ2 (6%) or only one HLA-DQ2 allele.
