We have set up a simple PCR-SSO oligotyping procedure that is able to discriminate ten HLA-A2 (2 PCR/11 probes), two HLA-A3 (1 PCR/1 probe), and two HLA-B44 subtypes (1 PCR/2 probes). The frequency of these subtypes has been determined in a large panel of local blood donors and leukemic patients in combination with their unrelated potential donors. A*0201(More)
We analyzed the rheumatoid factors (RF) produced by Epstein-Barr virus-transformed monoclonal B cells established from four patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), three individuals with a history of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (TB) and four normal controls (NI). Fifty-eight RF were analyzed for specific activity (international units-RF/microgram) for the(More)
Among the rheumatoid factors (RFs), monospecific and polyspecific types can be distinguished. However the molecular basis responsible for their different specificity is not well understood. In a previous report, we have shown that the binding of the majority of the polyspecific antibodies is salt-sensitive. No binding to IgG was observed under high ionic(More)
HLA-C alleles were characterized by a polymerase chain reaction-sequence specific oligonucleotide probe (PCR-SSOP) hybridization protocol in a sample of 120 Iranians from Tehran. A total of 23 alleles were identified with the four most predominant--Cw*0401, Cw*0602, Cw*1202, and Cw*0701/06--accounting for almost 50% of HLA-C alleles. A comparison of HLA-C(More)
