Identification of a new HLA-A*24 variant, A*2474, by sequence-based typing in the Korean population

Tissue Antigens. 2008 Jan;71(1):86-7. doi: 10.1111/j.1399-0039.2007.00971.x. Epub 2007 Nov 10.


A novel human leukocyte antigen, A*24 (HLA-A*24), was identified in the Korean population. HLA-A*2474 allele shows one nucleotide difference from A*24020101 in exon 2 at nucleotide position 186 (C --> A), resulting in an amino acid change, Ser38Arg.
