One well-studied example of the association between DQ molecules and autoimmunity is diabetes mellitus (DM). The susceptibility or lack of susceptibility of humans to the autoimmune response against pancreatic islet cells that results in insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) is determined by allelic polymorphisms of the ␤1 chain of the DQ antigen.
Lymphocytes circulating in the systemic circulation eventually enter a lymph node, exit the systemic circulation at the level of the high endothelial venules (HEV), leave the lymph node with the efferent lymph, and eventually reenter the systemic circulation. B lymphocytes of mucosal origin circulate between different segments of the mucosal-associated lymphoid tissues, including the GALT, the mammary gland–associated lymphoid tissue, and the lymphoid tissues associated with the respiratory tree and urinary tract.
This mechanism is supported by the fact that most human diseases in which autoimmune phenomena play a pathogenic role are strongly linked with class II HLA genes, particularly with the genes of the DQ locus. This probably reflects the fact that DQ molecules are involved in the interactions of APCs with helper/inducer CD4 T lymphocytes.
