The HLA class I sequences included in this compilation are taken from publications listed in the accompanying paper, Nomenclature for factors of the HLA system, 1990 (Bodmer et al. 1991) and Nomeclature for factors of the HLA system, 1989 (Bodmer et al. 1990). Where discrepancies have arisen between reported sequences the original authors have been contavted where possible, and necessary amendments to published sequences have been incorporated into this alignment. Future sequencing may identify errors in this list and we would welcome any evidence that helps to maintain the accuracy of this compilation. In the sequence alignments identify between residues is indicated by a hyphen (-). Unavailable sequence is indicated by a period (.). Gaps in the sequence are inserted to maintain the alignment between different alleles showing variation in amino acid number.
