The gene fragment corresponding to the 29-222aa of the human HLA-DPA1 protein was synthesized, with appropriate restriction sites suitable for in-frame cloning into an expression vector, with N-terminal 6xHis tag. The E.coli was transformed with the expression vector, and the clone was expressed upon certain induction. After the induced cell centrifugation, the recombinant protein was purified from the cell extract and presented as N-terminal 6xHis-tagged fusion. This recombinant human HLA-DPA1 protein's purity is greater than 90% assayed by SDS-PAGE. The HLA-DPA1 protein ran to a band of about 26 kDa molecular weight on the gel.

HLA-DPA1, also known as HLA-DP1A, HLASB or DPA1, belongs to the HLA class II alpha chain paralogues. HLA-DPA1 belongs to the HLA class II alpha chain paralogues. This class II molecule is a heterodimer consisting of an alpha (DPA) and a beta (DPB) chain, both anchored in the membrane. It plays a central role in the immune system by presenting peptides derived from extracellular proteins. Class II molecules are expressed in antigen presenting cells (APC: B lymphocytes, dendritic cells, macrophages). HLA-DPA1 function as an MHC class II receptor to participate in immune response and antigenic peptides presentation. Clinical study on adrenocortical tumors (ACT) indicated low expression of HLA-DPA1 was associated with poor prognosis. HLA-DPA1 and several other MHC class II genes’ down-regulation were involved as they function in antigen presentation.

Target Background

Binds peptides derived from antigens that access the endocytic route of antigen presenting cells (APC) and presents them on the cell surface for recognition by the CD4 T-cells. The peptide binding cleft accommodates peptides of 10-30 residues. The peptides presented by MHC class II molecules are generated mostly by degradation of proteins that access the endocytic route, where they are processed by lysosomal proteases and other hydrolases. Exogenous antigens that have been endocytosed by the APC are thus readily available for presentation via MHC II molecules, and for this reason this antigen presentation pathway is usually referred to as exogenous. As membrane proteins on their way to degradation in lysosomes as part of their normal turn-over are also contained in the endosomal/lysosomal compartments, exogenous antigens must compete with those derived from endogenous components. Autophagy is also a source of endogenous peptides, autophagosomes constitutively fuse with MHC class II loading compartments. In addition to APCs, other cells of the gastrointestinal tract, such as epithelial cells, express MHC class II molecules and CD74 and act as APCs, which is an unusual trait of the GI tract. To produce a MHC class II molecule that presents an antigen, three MHC class II molecules (heterodimers of an alpha and a beta chain) associate with a CD74 trimer in the ER to form a heterononamer. Soon after the entry of this complex into the endosomal/lysosomal system where antigen processing occurs, CD74 undergoes a sequential degradation by various proteases, including CTSS and CTSL, leaving a small fragment termed CLIP (class-II-associated invariant chain peptide). The removal of CLIP is facilitated by HLA-DM via direct binding to the alpha-beta-CLIP complex so that CLIP is released. HLA-DM stabilizes MHC class II molecules until primary high affinity antigenic peptides are bound. The MHC II molecule bound to a peptide is then transported to the cell membrane surface. In B-cells, the interaction between HLA-DM and MHC class II molecules is regulated by HLA-DO. Primary dendritic cells (DCs) also to express HLA-DO. Lysosomal microenvironment has been implicated in the regulation of antigen loading into MHC II molecules, increased acidification produces increased proteolysis and efficient peptide loading.
