The major histocompatibility complex (MHC) is a cluster of genes that are important in the immune response to infections. In humans, this complex is referred to as the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) region. There are 3 major MHC class I proteins encoded by the HLA which are HLA A, HLA B and HLA C.
The HLA B gene is part of the human HLA complex on chromosome 6 and there are a large number of variant alleles of this gene. This product recognizes the HLA B7 antigen and does not cross-react with HLA B27 or other related antigens. It can be used to distinguish true HLA B27 positives from false HLA B27 positives (i.e. HLA B7 positive) in the investigation of diseases such as ankylosing spondylitis and anterior uveitis.
