    For more than 30 years, human leukocyte antigen B27 (HLA-B27) has been known to be closely related to the autoimmune disease ankylosing spondylitis, yet little is known about the molecular mechanisms of pathogenesis. Crystal structures of two closely related, but differently disease-associated,...

    Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is so strongly associated with the genetical marker HLA-B27 that the molecule is supposed to play a central role in the pathogenesis of the disease. If this is true, it has to be explained why there is such a difference in pathogenic consequences between certain...
