A new HLA-A*26 variant, A*2637 identified by haplotype-specific extraction and sequencing-based typing

Tissue Antigens. 2009 Mar;73(3):275-6. doi: 10.1111/j.1399-0039.2008.01202.x.


The novel allele A*2637 differs from the common A*260101 by a single nucleotide substitution in exon 2 (position 186 C>G) causing an amino acid exchange (SER>ARG).
