haplotype

 [hap´lo-tīp]
1. a set of alleles of a group of closely linked genes, such as the HLA complex, which are usually inherited as a unit, an individual inheriting a complete haplotype from each parent.
2. the genetic constitution of an individual at a set of linked genes.

hap·lo·type

(hap'lō-tīp),
1. The genetic constitution of an individual with respect to one member of a pair of allelic genes; individuals are of the same haplotype (but of different genotypes) if alike with respect to one allele of a pair but different with respect to the other allele of a pair.
2. In immunogenetics, that portion of the phenotype determined by a set of closely linked genes inherited from one parent (that is, genes located on one of the pair of chromosomes).

1. The genetic constitution of an individual with respect to one member of a pair of allelic genes; individuals are of the same haplotype (but of different genotypes) if alike with respect to one allele of a pair but different with respect to the other allele of a pair.
2. immunogenetics That portion of the phenotype determined by a set of closely linked genes inherited from one parent (i.e., genes located on one of the pair of chromosomes). The human major histocompatability complex comprises 4 recognized loci (A, B, C, and D) for which there are more than 50 alleles. Similarly, the allotypic markers (antigens) of the immunoglobulin subclasses IgG1, IgG2, IgG3, and IgA2 occur in combinations and are inherited as units almost always unchanged in transmission; the alleles that control these various haploptypes are not linked to those controlling the antigens of the κ type L chains.
