Antigens, HLA-G

Class I Human Histocompatibility (HLA) Surface Antigens encoded by Alleles on locus B of the HLA complex. The HLA-G Antigens are considered non-classical Class I Antigens due to their distinct Tissue Distribution which differs from HLA-A; HLA-B; and HLA-C Antigens. Note that several Isoforms of HLA-G Antigens result from Alternative Splicing of messenger RNAs produced from the HLA-G*01 Allele.
