At least 11 HLA-DRB1*12 alleles have been identified to date. We report a new HLA-DRB1*12 allele, DRB1*1210, that was identified in the Korean population. This new allele differs from HLA-DRB1*120101 by a single nucleotide at position 40 (G→A) in exon 1 that falls within codon -16 (GTT→ATT). This change results in a single valine to isoleucine amino acid alteration.
