Summaries for HLA-G Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for HLA-G Gene

  • HLA-G belongs to the HLA class I heavy chain paralogues. This class I molecule is a heterodimer consisting of a heavy chain and a light chain (beta-2 microglobulin). The heavy chain is anchored in the membrane. HLA-G is expressed on fetal derived placental cells. The heavy chain is approximately 45 kDa and its gene contains 8 exons. Exon one encodes the leader peptide, exons 2 and 3 encode the alpha1 and alpha2 domain, which both bind the peptide, exon 4 encodes the alpha3 domain, exon 5 encodes the transmembrane region, and exon 6 encodes the cytoplasmic tail.

GeneCards Summary for HLA-G Gene

HLA-G (Major Histocompatibility Complex, Class I, G) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with HLA-G include severe pre-eclampsia and vaginal cancer. Among its related pathways are Immune System and Interleukin receptor SHC signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include protein homodimerization activity and peptide antigen binding. An important paralog of this gene is MR1.
