Identification of a new HLA-A*02 allele, HLA-A*02:230, using polymerase chain reaction sequence-based typing in a Chinese individual

Tissue Antigens. 2011 Feb;77(2):150-1. doi: 10.1111/j.1399-0039.2010.01573.x. Epub 2010 Oct 12.


Nucleotide sequence of HLA-A*02:230 allele was different from that of HLA-A*02:03:01 by a single nucleotide substitution at codon 139 (GCA > ACA), resulting in one amino acid change (Ala to Thr).
