Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A new HLA-B allele, B*5615, has been identified in a Caucasian individual by sequence-based typing. This allele shows a sequence identical to that of HLA-B*5601 except for two nucleotide substitutions that cause a change from TTA to TAC at codon 116 and an amino acidic change from Leucine to Tyrosine in the mature protein.
