Functional characterization and exon 2-intron 2-exon 3 gene sequence of HLA-B*2712 as found in a British family.


The HLA-B*27 group of alleles has been extensively studied due to the association of particular B*27 alleles with ankylosing spondylitis (AS). We describe here an HLA-B*27 allele (B*2712) encoding an antigen that lacks reactivity with B27 monoclonal antibodies (moabs) and alloantisera but reacts with some B40/B60 moabs and alloantisera and expresses the Bw6… (More)
