The major histocompatibility complex in vertebrates consists of a number of closely linked genetic loci that encode a variety of cell-surface glycoproteins and serum proteins known as histocompatibility antigens (Klein, 1975). Through these antigens, the cells of the immune system interact and thus regulate the antibody and cellular immune response to foreign antigens (Zinkernagel and Doherty, 1974; Klein, 1979). Biochemically, these antigens have been subdivided into three classes on the basis… CONTINUE READING
