Summaries for HLA-C Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for HLA-C Gene

  • HLA-C 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. Class I molecules play a central role in the immune system by presenting peptides derived from endoplasmic reticulum lumen. They are expressed in nearly all 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 exons 6 and 7 encode the cytoplasmic tail. Polymorphisms within exon 2 and exon 3 are responsible for the peptide binding specificity of each class one molecule. Typing for these polymorphisms is routinely done for bone marrow and kidney transplantation. Over one hundred HLA-C alleles have been described [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for HLA-C Gene

HLA-C (Major Histocompatibility Complex, Class I, C) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with HLA-C include Psoriasis Susceptibility 1 and Hiv-1. Among its related pathways are HTLV-I infection and TNF Signaling (sino). GO annotations related to this gene include receptor binding and TAP binding. An important paralog of this gene is HLA-B.
