The HLA system
The Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) system encodes the major histocompatibility complex proteins in humans. These proteins play a vital role in antigen presentation to T cells and thus form an integral part of the immune system. The HLA gene family are the most polymorphic in the human genome, with over 30,000 alleles reported to date. These polymorphisms contribute to the vast diversity in immunological response in humans and as such, associations between HLA and protection or susceptibility to numerous diseases are well documented.
