Chapter 47 Unrelated Donor Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation
|Allele||Unique sequence of an HLA gene defined by molecular methods||DRB1*04:01 allele is a unique sequence defined as DR4 by serologic methods|
|Antigen||Antibody-defined protein||DR4 antigen is a serologically defined protein product of an HLA gene|
|Haplotype||HLA genes inherited as a chromosomal unit||HLA-A1, HLA-B8, HLA-DR3 is a common haplotype among white populations|
|Genotype||Molecularly defined HLA allele or sequence||Genotypically matched donor and recipient are identical for the HLA alleles at a given HLA gene (e.g., HLA-DRB1*04:01)|
|Phenotype||Serologically defined HLA protein or antigen||Phenotypically matched donor and recipient share the same HLA antigen (e.g., HLA-DR4)|
