Abstract

We describe a complex polymorphic repeat discovered analyzing YAC 225B1, which spans the region between the HLA-A and HLA-E loci. The repeat consists of a variable number of the nucleotide A followed by a variable number of the trinucleotide AAG [(A)n(AAG)n]. Three different alleles were detected with an observed heterozygosity of 0.30.
