Abstract

A clone (pHLA-1) containing HLA-specific cDNA was constructed by reverse transcription of partially purified HLA mRNA from the human lymphoblastoid cell line LKT. The identity of pHLA-1 was established by its ability to hybridize to HLA heavy chain mRNA and by nucleotide sequence analysis. The pHLA-1 cDNA insert (~525 base pairs) corresponds to the COOH-terminal 46 amino acids of an HLA-A, -B, or -C antigen (15 residues from the hydrophobic region and the remainder from the COOH-terminal hydrophilic region), together with a portion of the 3' terminal untranslated region of the mRNA.
