Twenty-three specimens were collected from unrelated volunteer blood donors. DNA was obtained from blood specimens using “QIAamp Blood and Tissue kit” (QIAGEN GmbH, Hilden, Germany) according to the manufacturer's recommended protocol. Amplification was carried out in a “Gene Amp® PCR system 2400” thermal cycler (Perkin Elmer Corporation, California) using 5 ng target DNA. Typing of the six loci was performed by reverse dot blot with Allele Specific Oligonucleotides (ASO) probes, using “AmpliType® PMHLADQA1 PCR amplification and typing kit” (Roche Molecular Systems, Inc., New Jersey).
