Antigen Society #13 Report (B7, B27, Bw47, Bw73): Six Subtypes of HLA-B7 Defined by Histotypes, Epitopes and 1D-IEF
The HLA-B7 antigen was one of the best serologically defined HLA antigens in the Ninth Histocompatibility Workshop in 1984. Nevertheless, we could describe at least four different subtypes of the HLA-B7 antigen (*1). We now present data indicating a further heterogeneity of the HLA-B7 antigen as analyzed by HLA-B7 allospecific CTL clones, conventional pregnancy sera, and ID-IEF.
