Major histocompatibility complex, class II, DM beta

HLA-DMB belongs to the HLA class II beta chain paralogues. This class II molecule is a heterodimer consisting of an alpha (DMA) and a beta (DMB) chain, both anchored in the membrane. It is located in intracellular vesicles. DM plays a central role in the peptide loading of MHC class II molecules by helping to release the CLIP (class II-associated invariant chain peptide) molecule from the peptide binding site. Class II molecules are expressed in antigen presenting cells (APC: B lymphocytes, dendritic cells, macrophages). The beta chain is approximately 26-28 kDa and its gene contains 6 exons. Exon one encodes the leader peptide, exons 2 and 3 encode the two extracellular domains, exon 4 encodes the transmembrane domain and exon 5 encodes the cytoplasmic tail.

Hazen et al., Cleveland, United States. In Cell, Jan 2016
A structural analog of choline, 3,3-dimethyl-1-butanol (DMB), is shown to non-lethally inhibit TMA formation from cultured microbes, to inhibit distinct microbial TMA lyases, and to both inhibit TMA production from physiologic polymicrobial cultures (e.g., intestinal contents, human feces) and reduce TMAO levels in mice fed a high-choline or L-carnitine diet.

Taga et al., Berkeley, United States. In Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, Sep 2015
The complete aerobic and anaerobic pathways for the de novo biosynthesis of B12 are known, with the exception of the steps leading to the anaerobic biosynthesis of the lower ligand, 5,6-dimethylbenzimidazole (DMB).
A Multiplex Assay for the Diagnosis of Mucopolysaccharidoses and Mucolipidoses.
van Vlies et al., Amsterdam, Netherlands. In Plos One, 2014
Often the dimethylmethylene blue dye-binding (DMB) assay is used, although false-negative results have been reported.

Forced expression of HLA-DM at the surface of dendritic cells increases loading of synthetic peptides on MHC class II molecules and modulates T cell responses.
Thibodeau et al., Montréal, Canada. In J Immunol, 2011
Overexpression of HLA-DM at the plasma membrane of dendritic cells improves quantitatively, but also qualitatively, the presentation of CD4-expressing T cell epitopes in cellular vaccine therapies for cancer.
DM influences the abundance of major histocompatibility complex class II alleles with low affinity for class II-associated invariant chain peptides via multiple mechanisms.
Mellins et al., Stanford, United States. In Immunology, 2010
Multiple mechanisms, operating along the biosynthetic pathway of class II molecules, contribute to DM-mediated increases in the abundance of low-CLIP-affinity alleles.
Cutting edge: HLA-DM-mediated peptide exchange functions normally on MHC class II-peptide complexes that have been weakened by elimination of a conserved hydrogen bond.
Gorski et al., Milwaukee, United States. In J Immunol, 2010
HLA-DM mediates a noncooperative release of prebound influenza virus hemagglutinin peptides from wild-type HLA-DR1 by destabilizing the beta81 hydrogen (H-)bond, since a similar phenomenon is observed when this H-bond is absent.
Cutting edge: HLA-DM functions through a mechanism that does not require specific conserved hydrogen bonds in class II MHC-peptide complexes.
Jensen et al., Salt Lake City, United States. In J Immunol, 2009
No individual component of conserved HLA-DM hydrogen bond network demonstrates an essential role in the DM catalytic mechanism. Catalytic potency of HLA-DM with each beta-chain mutant was equal to or greater than that observed with wild-type HLA-DR1.
