what does HLA-G stand for?
Posted 11 September 2011 - 08:13 PM
there are two different names for it
1-human leukocyte antigen, class I, G
2-histocompatibility antigen, class I, G
which one is correct?

The human leukocyte antigen naming came about early on during transplantation research, when scientists hadn't described or didn't fully understand histocompatibility.
Both are correct, but I suppose if you wanted to be pedantic about it, then (1) is more correct.

Human Leukocyte Antigen class I has only :
A, B & C types ... no G!
and class II has :
DQ, DR, DP, .... & many others ...
so, you have to check.
