Abstract

We report here a de novo HLA-DRB1 allele, DRB1*16:16, discovered in a Taiwanese unrelated volunteer bone marrow stem cell donor by a sequence-based typing (SBT) method. In exon 2, the DNA sequence of DRB1*16:16 is identical to the sequence of DRB1*16:02:01 except the nucleotides at positions 258 (C→T), 260 (C→A) and 261 (T→G). The nucleotide substitution produced an amino acid replacement at residue 58 (A→E). The formation of DRB1*16:16 was probably generated by a DNA sequence recombination event involving DRB1*11:01:01 and DRB1*16:02:01. The probable HLA-A, -B and -DRB1 haplotype in association with DRB1*16:16 may be deduced as A*02-B*38-DRB1*16:16.
