Searches for MHC-encoded disease susceptibility genes have led to considerable knowledge of the content of the class I region. In an effort to further understand the nature of the five 6.7 family members previously mapped to this region of the genome, we have further analyzed the cross-reactive members of the family and have observed additional genomic instability within the HLA-A subregion. Such genomic variation may underscore the slower evolutionary rates of the HLA-A allelic family and the… CONTINUE READING
