Illustration of HLA-DR

HLA-DR2 (DR2) of the HLA-DR serotype system, is a broad antigen serotype that is now preferentially covered by HLA-DR15 and HLA-DR16 serotype group. This serotype primarily recognizes gene products of the HLA-DRB1*15 and HLA-DRB1*16 allele groups.

Serology[edit]

DR15, DR2 and other serotype recognition of some DRB1*15 alleles[1]
DRB1* DR15 DR2 DR16 Sample

1501 76 23 6428
1502 77 16 676
1503 81 13 286

1601 41 29 19 703
1602 47 30 16 239
1604 >50 1

Disease associations[edit]

DR2 serotypes are associated with Goodpasture syndrome, multiple sclerosis,[2] and narcolepsy, tuberculoid leprosy[3] (multi-drug resistant tuberculosis or leprosy),[4] ulcerative colitis(Japanese),[5] primary biliary cirrhosis and autoimmune hepatitis.[6] DR2 is also found in all patients that test positive for anti-anti-Asn-RNA-synthetase and chronic interstitial lung disease.[7]

Genetic linkage[edit]

DR2 is linked to the HLA-DR53.
