Abstract

A new human leukocyte antigen (HLA) A allele, HLA-A*3020, was found during routine HLA genotyping by polymerase chain reaction-sequence specific oligonucleotide probes and sequencing-based typing. The A*3020 allele has one nucleotide change at position 294 of exon 2 from the closest matching allele A*300101, resulting in an amino acid change from D (GAC) to E (GAA) at codon 98.
