HLA-A26 (A26) is an HLA-A serotype. The serotype identifies the more common HLA-A*26 gene products. A26 is a split antigen of the A10 broad antigen serotype group. A*2601 is believed to be the ancestral type for the A10 group, this group also includes A25, A34, A43 and A66. A26 is broadly distributed but A26 is unusually common in Japan with a number of variants.
Serotype recognition of most alleles is generally good.
