We report herein the identification of a new HLA-DRB1 allele, DRB1*0707. This new allele was seen in a volunteer bone marrow donor (ID#118069) belonging to the German bone marrow donor registry (DKMS). HLA-DRB1*0707 was detected while performing HLA-DRB1 high resolution typing by sequence based typing. This novel allele differs from DRB1*070101 by a single nucleotide substitution at position 163 (C→T) in exon 2.
