Registry Version: 2.0
This website is designed for research purposes only. The contents are not intended for making clinical decisions regarding donor selection or patient care.
There are five separate databases: ABC, DRB1/3/4/5, DQB + DQA, DPB + DPA and MICA.
Each eplet has its own row, and eplets are sorted according to their amino acid sequence positions. Each database has search options to identify repertoires of antibody-verified eplets on selected alleles and eplets that are mismatched for a given HLA type. A new feature is the “EpiPedia of HLA”, which summarizes the experimental evidence for each antibody-verified HLA eplet. Click here to download the PDF. For more detailed information about the HLA Epitope Registry, click here.
This Registry is a work-in-progress and we plan to have quarterly updates that incorporate new antibody-verified eplets and additional information about antibody reactivity.
HLA professionals are encouraged to contact Rene Duquesnoy or Marilyn Marrari to submit antibody reactivity data for new HLA eplets and other relevant information. Contributions will be acknowledged in the Registry.
