Antigen Report: HLA-B45
As long ago as 1970  it was recognized that HLA-B12 consisted of at least two distinct subgroups, defined by serum TT from Aarhus. They were referred to then as B12-non-TT and B12-TT*, and are now designated B44 and B45. During the Eighth International Histocompatibility Workshop in 1980, B45 was well defined by sera 192 and 397 (original TT).
