RFLP: Sequence Interrelations at the DPA and DPB Loci
In the RFLP summary report (1), the RFLP reactivity patterns of 68 Workshop cells were reported. At the DPB1 locus, fragment patterns enabled current DPw1–5 specificities to be distinguished. None of the studied Workshop cells were assigned the DPw6 specificity. In addition, RFLP patterns indicative of subtypes of DPw2 and DPw4 specificities were identified, along with patterns associated with DPw “blank” cells representing new specificities.
