Technical Data
HLA Class 1 Antigen A2 (HLA Class I Histocompatibility Antigen, A-2 alpha Chain, MHC Class I Antigen A*2, HLA-A, HLAA)
Human leukocyte antigen (HLA) A2 is a subset of MHC-class I molecules encoded by A*02 alleles. HLA-A2 is more common in Northern Asia and North America populations. MHC class I antigens associated with B2-microglobulin are expressed by all human nucleated cells. MHC class I molecules are involved in presentation of antigens to CD8+ T cells playing an important role in cell-mediated immune responses and tumor surveillance.
