Summary: Two novel human leucocyte antigen (HLA) class I alleles have been identified in two Italian individuals. HLA-B*27:07:02 is identical to HLA-B*27:07:01 except for a nucleotide substitution at position 846 (A->G) resulting in a silent mutation. HLA-B*35:206 differs from the most similar allele, HLA-B*35:08:01, because of a single base mutation at position 149 (G->C) causing an aminoacidic change at codon 26 from Gly to Ala.
