    Abstract

    HLA human histocompatibility leukocyte antigens −A and −B antigens are expressed on human spermatozoa. A micro- and a macro-technique are described to HLA-type dried sperm coming from unknown subjects. The high HLA genetic polymorphism allows a high degree of sperm individualization which may be of value to blame or discard suspects in forensic science cases.
