B-F DNA sequence variability in Brazilian (blue-egg Caipira) chickens.


A total of 100 chickens from the Brazilian (blue-egg Caipira) native breed were studied in relation to exon 2 of the B-F genes of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) region. After a first screening on 100 birds, 22 animals were selected for amplification, cloning and sequencing experiments of exons 2-4 (a total of 1048 bp) of their DNA. Twenty-three… (More)
