Based on unusual probe hybridization patterns, two human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-A, five HLA-B, and two HLA-C alleles (A*240208, A*3211Q; B*1822, B*3938Q, B*4606, B*4607N, B*5139; Cw*0321, Cw*0734) were identified in individuals from the Singapore Bone Marrow Donor Program and Singapore Cord Blood Bank. Eight of the nine alleles encode amino acid substitutions altering the antigen-binding region including three alleles with changes altering a cysteine at codon 164 (A*3211Q, B*3938Q, B*4607N… CONTINUE READING
