Nucleotide sequence diversity of HLA class II genes in Australian Aborigines and populations of Asia-Oceania

Xiaojiang Gao
The aim of this thesis was to investigate nucleotide sequence diversity of HLA class II genes in Australian Aborigines and indigenous peoples of Asia-Oceania. Nineteen study populations represented eight major ethnic groups including Australian Aborigines, Papua New Guinean highlanders, coastal Melanesians, Polynesians, Micronesians, Javanese, southern and northern Chinese, and a minority group from northwestern China. Using PCR-based technologies, the nucleotide sequence polymorphism in exon 2 DRB1, DRB3, DRB5, DQA1 and DQB1 genes was examined in...
