Abstract

HLA-A*2418 is described for the first time. It segregates in a Mendelian fashion. Serological analyses indicate that the new allele encodes epitopes from both HLA-A9 and -A3 specificities. Results from nucleotide sequencing analyses of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification products derived from genomic and cDNA are compatible with those findings.
