Medical Definition of HLA-c antigens

1. Class I human histocompatibility (HLA) antigens encoded by a small cluster of structural genes at the c locus on chromosome 6. They have significantly lower immunogenicity than the HLA-a and -b determinants and are therefore of minor importance in donor/recipient crossmatching. Their primary role is their high-risk association with certain disease manifestations (e.g., spondylarthritis, psoriasis, multiple myeloma). (12 Dec 1998)
