Sequence-based typing of exons 1-5 of a new HLA-B allele, B*3927*.


Anew human leucocyte antigen-B (HLA-B) allele, B*3927, was detected in three individuals of a Caucasian family by routine typing with sequence-specific primers (SSP). Serological typing showed B27 Bw4 and B39 Bw6, whereas SSP detected only B*27 as well as the Bw4 and Bw6 motif. The sequence of exons 1-5 of the new allele was determined by allele-specific… (More)
