Abstract

We have identified a new HLA-B*15 allele and a new HLA-DRB1*12 allele, named B*1568 and DRB1*1208, respectively. The alleles were identified using a combination of sequence specific primers, reverse line sequence specific oligonucleotide probing and sequence-based typing. Both alleles were identified in a single individual of Korean origin. HLAB*1568 appears to be an HLA-B*4801/B*1507 hybrid combining the exon 2 sequence of B*4801 and the exon 3 and 4 sequences of B*1507. Exon 2 of DRB1*1208 was most similar to DRB1*1201 or 1206, with a single mismatch at nucleotide position 165 (A to C). At the protein level, this substitution results in a phenylalanine substitution at position 26 that creates an identical amino acid sequence to DRB3*0202 between amino acid positions 17 and 36.
