complejo de histocompatibilidad
complejo mayor de histocompatibilidad
Scope note: Región genética que contiene los loci de genes que determinan la estructura de los antígenos definidos serológicamente (SD) y por los linfocitos (LD) denominados ANTÍGENOS DE TRASPLANTES, que controlan la estructura de los ANTÍGENOS ASOCIADOS A LA RESPUESTA INMUNE HUMANA. Los GENES DE LA RESPUESTA INMUNE controlan la capacidad de respuesta inmunológica a estímulos antigénicos y genes que determinan la estructura y la concentración de los primeros cuatro componentes del complemento.
