Summary: In this report, we present a novel HLA-A*02:07 allele, HLA-A*02:07:08. HLA-A*02:07:08 was identified in an individual of Han ethnicity in Hunan province, southern China. Following polymerase chain reaction-sequence-based typing (PCR-SBT), this new allele was further confirmed by cloning and sequencing. HLA-A*02:07:08 differs from HLA-A*02:07:01 by a single synonymous C to T substitution at nucleotide position 131 in exon 3.
