Isolation of major histocompatibility complex Class I genes from the tammar wallaby (Macropus eugenii)

Deakin, Janine; Siddle, Hannah V; Baker, Michelle L; Miller, Robert D; Belov, Katherine


The major histocompatibility complex (MHC) plays an essential role in the adaptive immune system of vertebrates through antigen recognition. Although MHC genes are found in all vertebrates, the MHC region is dynamic and has changed throughout vertebrate evolution, making it an important tool for comparative genomics. Marsupials occupy an important position in mammalian phylogeny, yet the MHC of few marsupials has been studied in detail. We report the isolation and analysis of expressed MHC...[Show more]
