Characterisation of non-classical MHC class I genes in the Tasmanian devil (Sarcophilus harrisii)

  title={Characterisation of non-classical MHC class I genes in the Tasmanian devil (Sarcophilus harrisii)},
  author={Yuanyuan Cheng and Katherine Belov},
The Tasmanian devil (Sarcophilus harrisii) is a carnivorous marsupial that is under threat of extinction due to an unusual transmissible disease called Devil Facial Tumour Disease (DFTD). Previous studies on the classical MHC genes have provided important insights into immune responses in this endangered species; however, so far, very little is known about the non-classical MHC genes of this species, which can also play significant roles in the immune system. Here, we report characterisation of… CONTINUE READING
