HLAhuman leukocyte antigenshuman leukocyte antigen (HLA)
HLA-B is part of a family of genes called the human leukocyte antigen (HLA) complex.
HLAs corresponding to MHC class I (A, B, and C) which all are the HLA Class1 group present peptides from inside the cell.

HLA-A

HLA-serotype tutorialAhla-a antigens
In humans, the HLA-B gene and two related genes, HLA-A and HLA-C, are the major genes in MHC class I.
The others are HLA-B and HLA-C.

MHC class I

class IMHC Iclass I MHC
Genes in this complex are separated into three basic groups: class I, class II, and class III.
In humans, the HLAs corresponding to MHC class I are HLA-A, HLA-B, and HLA-C.

Major histocompatibility complex

MHCmajor histocompatibility complex (MHC)HLA loci
Genes in this complex are separated into three basic groups: class I, class II, and class III. HLA is the human version of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC), a gene family that occurs in many species.
In humans, MHC class I comprises HLA-A, HLA-B, and HLA-C molecules.

Stevens–Johnson syndrome

Stevens-Johnson syndromeSteven Johnson syndromeStevens Johnson syndrome
Individuals who have HLA-B*1502 are more likely to experience a severe skin disorder called Stevens–Johnson syndrome in response to carbamazepine (a drug used to treat seizures).
Those peptides expressing a drug-related, non-self epitope on one of their various HLA protein forms (HLA-A, HLA-B, HLA-C, HLA-DM, HLA-DO, HLA-DP, HLA-DQ, or HLA-DR) can bind to a T-cell receptor and thereby stimulate the receptor-bearing parent T cell to initiate attacks on self tissues.
