Studies of HLA-G and HLA-E polymorphisms in different populations from many industrialized countries have uniformly reported little sequence variation within these genes. To date, the polymorphism of these genes has not been characterized in populations from developing countries where more sequence variation would be anticipated due to greater exposure to microbial pathogens. In order to address this issue, we have recently investigated the polymorphism of these MHC genes in an indigenous… CONTINUE READING
