Abstract

Here, we describe the characterisation of a new allelic variant of HLA-B*57. The novel allele, HLA-B*5728N, was identified with sequence-based typing in a Caucasoid family. HLA-B*5728N, differs from HLA-B*5701 because of a nucleotide substitution at position 420 (C->G) resulting in a coding change from Tyrosine to a stop codon.
