Genes and Disease by the National Center for Biotechnology (Excerpt)

The likelihood of developing narcolepsy is influenced by proteins known as histocompatibility leukocyte antigens (HLA). HLA refers to a group of proteins (antigens) that influence the level to which white blood cells (leukocytes) accept transplanted tissue (histocompatibility). It is now known that hypocretin deficiency in humans is closely associated with the HLA protein DQB1*0602. It has been suggested that the cause of human narcolepsy is the body's immune cells attacking and damaging the neurons that secrete hypocretin.
