We report a new DRB1 allele, DRB1*1217, identified by direct sequencing of a bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) clone originated from genomic DNA of a Korean donor. DRB1*1217 differs from previously reported DRB1*120201 by a single nucleotide substitution, which results in an amino acid change at codon 67 [TTC→ATC (F>I)].
