A growing body of evidence links the analysis of the KIR genotype and the presence of their HLA-B and -C ligands to a wide repertoire of human diseases.We noticed that, using a panel of 184 Caucasoid donors, a limited number of HLA alleles were incorrectly supratyped by previously described pyrosequence-based assays. Here we describe a simple implementation of the reported methods that corrects all the discrepancies found with HLA-B and -C molecular typing and allows establishing a quick and high-throughput method for the determination of HLA-Bw4 I80, Bw4T80, Bw6 and HLA-C1 or -C2 supratype.

Abstract

A growing body of evidence links the analysis of the KIR genotype and the presence of their HLA-B and -C ligands to a wide repertoire of human diseases.We noticed that, using a panel of 184 Caucasoid donors, a limited number of HLA alleles were incorrectly supratyped by previously described pyrosequence-based assays. Here we describe a simple implementation of the reported methods that corrects all the discrepancies found with HLA-B and -C molecular typing and allows establishing a quick and high-throughput method for the determination of HLA-Bw4 I80, Bw4T80, Bw6 and HLA-C1 or -C2 supratype.
