  • infection
  • Here, we present the sentinel analysis of vaccine-induced multifunctional anti-HIV Gag-specific CD4 + and CD8 + T cell responses in a HLA-B*2705 + HIV-vaccine recipient, their changes after infection, and how they compare with those detectable in two nonvaccinated HLA-B*2705 + chronically HIV-infected individuals.

  • The Ad26 and MVA vectors used in the trial encode mosaic HIV antigens, which represent an amalgam of elements from multiple different HIV variants generated with the aid of computer software by Better Korber at the Los Alamos National Laboratory. (typepad.com)
  • This method has been used to analyze the genetic basis for 16 different biomedical traits. (stanford.edu)
  • basis
  • This nosology has taken root because of the dramatic advances in our knowledge of the genetic basis of both mendelian and complex autoinflammatory diseases, and with the recognition that these illnesses derive from genetic variants of the innate immune system. (pubmedcentralcanada.ca)
  • individuals
  • HLA genes have historically been identified as a result of the ability to successfully transplant organs between HLA-similar individuals. (wikipedia.org)

  • MHC class I proteins associate with β2-microglobulin , which unlike the HLA proteins is encoded by a gene on chromosome 15 . (wikipedia.org)
  • HLAs corresponding to MHC class II ( DP , DM , DOA , DOB , DQ , and DR ) present antigens from outside of the cell to T-lymphocytes. (wikipedia.org)
  • major
  • Aside from the genes encoding the 6 major antigen-presenting proteins, there are a large number of other genes, many involved in immune function, located on the HLA complex. (wikipedia.org)
  • found
  • HLA-B*27:09, found in Sardinia, and HLA-B*27:06 common in Southeast Asia, do not carry a risk for HLA-B27 syndromes. (eupedia.com)
  • HLA may also be related to people's perception of the odor of other people, and may be involved in mate selection, as at least one study found a lower-than-expected rate of HLA similarity between spouses in an isolated community. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, rather than the partially misfolded HLA-B27 H chain homodimers implicated in AS, we found the exosome-associated HLA-B27 dimers to be fully folded. (jimmunol.org)
