Allele assignment for HLA-A, -B, and -C genes to the Tenth International Histocompatibility Workshop cell lines.
Development of DNA typing for Class I HLA alleles has lagged behind that of class II for a variety of technical reasons. Following the recognition of locus specific sequences in the first and the third intron, and acquiring the ability to amplify genomic DNA by intron-based PCR primer, we have devised DNA typing of class I alleles by SSOP and direct sequencing. In this study using these techniques we provide the allelic typing of HLA-A, -B, and -C genes for the B-lymphoblastoid reference cell lines from the Tenth International Histocompatibility Workshop. We also describe some common associations of the C alleles with HLA-A and HLA-B alleles.
