Medical Definition of HLA-d antigens

1. Human immune-response or class II antigens found mainly, but not exclusively, on B-lymphocytes and produced from genes of the HLA-d locus. They are extremely polymorphic families of glycopeptides, each consisting of two chains, alpha and beta. This group of antigens includes the -dr, -dq and -dp designations, of which HLA-dr is most studied; some of these glycoproteins are associated with certain diseases, possibly of immune aetiology.
