HLA-B14 subtyping by semi-nested PCR-SSP and haplotype distribution in a Spanish population.


HLA-B14 serological subtyping is very limited probably due to the internal position of the unique amino acid residue that differentiates B64 and B65 molecules. In order to carry out an accurate B14 subtyping we have designed a semi-nested PCR-SSP procedure that can differentiate B*1401 and B*1402 in any HLA-A, -B or -C antigen combination. A panel of 133… (More)
