Expression of HLA-DQ Molecules on Human Monocytes: Identification of Two Phenotypically Different Monocyte Populations with Distinct Accessory Cell Function
Class II major histocompatibility antigens (MHC) play a fundamental role for both antigen presentation to T cells and stimulation in mixed lymphocyte reactions. Recent progress in the understanding of human class II MHC antigens has provided evidence for at least three types of Ia molecules:HLA-DR,DQ, and DP.
