Supertype classification of HLA-A alleles. The alleles associated with each HLA-A supertype, multiple supertypes, or that are unclassified, are shown. Under each supertype, alleles are group (by color) on the basis of the stringency of selection: experimentally established motif (i.e., reference panel) (green), exact match(es) in the B and F pockets (white), one exact and one key residue pocket match (yellow), key residue match(es) at B and F pockets (grey). Alleles with no match at one or both pockets are listed with red font.
