different soluble (HLA-G5–HLA-G7) and membrane bound (HLA-G1–HLA-G4) isoforms may be involved in regulation of accommodation of different allograft types. Recently, only HLA-G1 isoform in peripheral blood mononuclear cells and biopsy samples was reported to have association with kidney allograft state (10). In summary, our results suggest that, unlike in liver transplantpediatricrecipients, serological monitoring for HLA-G levels in pediatric kidney transplant recipients may have limited… CONTINUE READING
