We have refined and extended the map of the distal half of the human major histocompatibility complex. The map is continuous from HLA-E to 1000 kb telomeric of HLA-F and includes six new markers and genes. In addition, the corresponding sequences that were not previously mapped in the mouse genome have been located. The human and the mouse organizations(More)
BACKGROUND So-called "immunoprivileged sites" are tissues or organs where slow allograft rejection correlates with low levels of expression of MHC class I molecules. Whilst classical class I molecules are recognised by cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL), some MHC class I molecules are called "non-classical" because they exhibit low polymorphism and are not(More)
OTF3 (octamer transcription factor 3) is a transcription factor containing a POU-specific domain and a homeodomain that could play a role in early development. In situ hybridization and pairwise linkage analysis showed that OTF3 gene maps close to the human MHC (major histocompatibility complex). In this paper, we define its localization within the MHC,(More)
In this article, [1] figure 2 was generated using the pretty output of the GCG software suite. Residues in agreement with the consensus appear as-, whilst gaps are shown as dots. Because of inaccurate settings in the software when generating the figure originally published, however, Y vs F and W vs R differences between individual sequences and the(More)
The MOG locus, located on chromosomal bands 6p21.3-p22 and mapped about 100 kb telomeric to HLA-F, was isolated from cosmid ICRFc109A2434 and shown to contain three microsatellites. These CA-repeat polymorphic markers were characterized in a sample of 173 healthy unrelated individuals and 84 DNAs from the HLA Workshop reference panel, by a method combining(More)
