Abstract The allelic variation of one of the chromosome 19 KIR genes, KIR2DL3, has been investigated using a polymerase chain reaction sequence-specific oligonucleotide probe-based methodology. The procedure has been applied to a healthy Northern Irish control group in order to establish phenotype and genotype frequencies in this Caucasian population. In addition, cell line DNA and Centre d’Etude du Humaine (CEPH) families, both from the 13th International Histocompatibility Workshop have been investigated, establishing control data for this gene.
