SLCO1B1 Haplotypes updated on PharmGKB

The PharmGKB Haplotype table for SLCO1B1 has just been updated and  now contains information for alleles *1-*36.  The literature includes two different alleles which were both named *16 at the time of publication, and we are using the definition for the first *16 allele to be published.  References are listed at the top of the page, above the table.  We appreciate the help of Dr. Laura Ramsey from St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and of  Dr. Kathy Giacomini and the International Transporter Consortium (Polymorphism subgroup) !  Presumably in the future, the duplicate *16 allele will receive a later *allele designation and can then be added to this table.
