Molecular diversity of the HLA-C gene identified in a caucasian population.

A DNA typing procedure, based on a two stage polymerase chain reaction-sequence-specific oligonucleotide probe (PCR-SSOP) typing strategy, has been developed and applied to DNA from 1000 healthy individuals from the Northern Ireland region. The two-stage procedure involves human leukocyte antigen ( HLA-C) identification through the use of a medium resolution PCR-SSOP system, followed by four secondary group specific PCR-SSOP systems, to enable allele resolution. The PCR-SSOP systems were designed for the identification of HLA-Cw alleles with possible discrimination within exons 2 and 3 of the HLA-C gene, i.e., HLA-Cw*01-Cw*16. PCR-SSP tests were designed for the resolution of HLA-Cw*17 and -Cw*18 alleles. The systems can also be used independently of each other if selective allele resolution is required. HLA-Cw allele frequencies occurring within the Northern Ireland population have been compiled, along with estimations of HLA-B/Cw haplotype frequencies.[1]
