Major histocompatibility complex (MHC) genes are the most polymorphic loci known for vertebrates. Although this has been known for over two decades, the selective forces maintaining this genetic diversity are unclear. Efforts to study selection on these loci in nature have been hampered because no simple MHC typing systems are available. Here, we describe and evaluate a microsatellite-based MHC genotyping system for house mice (Mus domesticus). Thirty-five MHC-linked microsatellite loci were… CONTINUE READING
