Illustration of HLA-DR

HLA-DR6 (DR6) is a broad-antigen serotype that is further split into HLA-DR13 and HLA-DR14 antigen serotypes.

Serology[edit]

DR13, DR6 and other serotype recognition of some DRB1*13 and DRB1*14 alleles[1]
DRB1* DR13 DR6 DR14 Sample
allele  %  %  % size (N)
1301 81 14 1 3788
1302 74 17 2 3081
1303 69 10 2 948[2]
1304 87 127
1305 54 12 305[3]

1401 74 14 3 1942
1402 61 13 9 204
1403 72 12 2 37
1404 79 8 80[4]
1405 86 10 58
1406 37 15 22 117
1407 90 10
1408 25 4[5]
1410 >75 4

DR6 serological reactivity is relatively poor compared to other serological tests for DR antigens. Compare to DQ2 or DR7.

Disease associations[edit]

DR13 and DR14 share a common association to myastenia gravis[6]

Allele groups[edit]

HLA-DRB1*13 and HLA-DRB1*14 encode serotypes of DR6
