We report the identification of the novel allele HLA-Cw*0760 that was found during confirmatory high-resolution sequence-based typing of a bone marrow donor. The Cw*0760 allele has two nucleotide changes from Cw*070101 at positions 341 and 343 in exon 2, resulting in two amino acid changes from Asp to Ala (codon 90: GAC→GCC) and Gly to Arg (codon 91: GGG→AGG). © 2009 John Wiley & Sons A/S.
