The alloantigen Qa-2, whose gene is located on the 17th chromosome between H-2D and Tla, is identified as a molecule of 43,000 daltons which is associated with β2-microglobulin. Qa-2 comprises approximately 0.15% of the iodinateable cell surface protein of lymph node cells. Sequential precipitations demonstrated that Qa-2 is distinct from H-2D and H-2K molecules.
