In the present study, we characterized the allelic and haplotypic profile of the genes HLA-A, -B, -C and -DRB1 (PCR-SBT) in a population sample of 144 highly admixed individuals, coming from rural communities in Brazil (Quilombos from Vale do Ribeira, in the State of Sao Paulo). Furthermore, we identified three individuals with a new null allele in the HLA-C gene (HLA-C{*}02:105N), associated with the haplotype HLA-A{*}80: 01 similar to 13018: 01:01G similar to DRB1{*} 07:01.
