Marsupials are one of three main evolutionary lineages in mammals, the other two being the monotremes and the placental mammals. The marsupial and the placental lineages separated between 120 and 156 million years ago. In this communication, we provide the first molecular description of class I major histocompatibility complex (Mhc) genes in a representative of the marsupial lineage, the red-necked wallaby, Macropus rufogriseus. Three different, nearly full-length class I Mhc sequences were… CONTINUE READING
