BACKGROUND Epitopes of human leukocyte antigen (HLA) are the sites to which the antibodies bind. We identify here 103 HLA class I epitopes shared by groups of class I antigens. In particular, our emphasis was on identifying epitopes exclusive to the C-locus antigens or interlocus epitopes among A, B, and C antigens. The use of monoclonal antibodies or alloantibodies eluted from HLA recombinant single antigen cell lines tested with a panel of single antigen beads have proved very useful in the… CONTINUE READING
