<p>Shown are the HLA-A, -B and -C allotypes (left) identified in the Ga-Adangbe study population (2N = 366), their frequencies (centre) and the KIR they interact with (right); † – from <a href="" target="_blank">[113]</a> and Hilton <i>et al.</i> (unpublished). Characteristic alleles of sub-Saharan African populations <a href="" target="_blank">[13]</a>, <a href="" target="_blank">[74]</a> are shown in bold. By frequency, approximately half of the <i>HLA-A</i> and <i>-B</i> and one third of the HLA-C alleles are specific to sub-Saharan Africans (twelve <i>HLA-A</i> alleles; combined frequency 50.3%: fourteen <i>HLA-B</i> alleles; and 45.4%: three <i>HLA-C</i> alleles; 32.8%).</p
