© 2016 American Society for Histocompatibility and ImmunogeneticsA novel human leucocyte antigen (HLA)-A allele, HLA-A01:195, was identified by sequence-based typing (SBT) in a UAE national subject. The novel allele is identical to its closest known allele, HLA-A01:01:01:01, in exon 2, 3 and 4, except for a single nucleotide mutation of A to G at position 442 in exon 3 (codon 124 in the a2 domain of the a chain of the mature protein). This A to G mutation results in an amino acid change of isoleucine #124 to valine.
