31C>A); the last one is polymorphic in ovine species than those found in the other intronic region (Garcia-Fernandez et al.
A thorough review of the variant spectrum associated with each gene is essential to identify common pathogenic variants or hot spots and pathogenic variants located outside of typically covered exonic regions, such as deep intronic or untranslated regions.
A total of nine SNPs were associated with at least one trait; five SNPs were intronic, and four SNPs had known functional changes.
Because all novel alleles were found to exclusively harbor intronic polymorphisms, we sought to characterize HLA variability by genomic feature (UTR, intron, and exon) to determine whether or not intronic variations are more or less common than polymorphisms within other regions of the HLA genes.
