Identification of the novel allele HLA-B*51:84 by sequence-based typing method in a Taiwanese individual

Tissue Antigens. 2010 Oct;76(4):337-8. doi: 10.1111/j.1399-0039.2010.01519.x.


A new human leukocyte antigen-B allele, B*51:84 (B*5184), has been found in Taiwan. It differs from B*51:01:01(B*510101) by one nucleotide substitution at codon 145 (CGC →GGC), resulting to one amino acid change (Arginine to Glycine).
