Classical major histocompatibility complex class II genes The HLA-DR region is composed of one nonpolymorphic DRA gene whose product combines with the product of numerous DRB genes to form the HLA-DR heterodimers. 1). The presence and number of other DRB loci vary on different HLA-DR haplotypes. The HLA-DQ molecule is composed of the product of the two DQA and two DQB genes, with only one of each (DQA1 and DQB1) encoding a functional product. HLA-DP is the last and most centromeric-lying of the classical class II loci to be described.
