Investigation of killer cell immunoglobulin-like receptors KIR2DL2 and KIR2DL3 diversity and identification of ten novel KIR2DL3 alleles in the Chinese Han population.


KIR2DL2 and KIR2DL3 are important inhibitory receptors that recognize a subset of HLA-C allelic products carrying Ser77 and Asn80. In this study, we have determined KIR2DL2 and KIR2DL3 diversity in the Chinese Han population by a PCR sequence-based typing. Based on sequencing, the coding regions of 166 Chinese Han individuals, seven new polymorphic sites… (More)
