Effects of an MHC-DRB genotype and allele number on the load of gut parasites in the bank vole Myodes glareolus.

Abstract

The major histocompatibility complex (MHC) genes code for the proteins responsible for pathogen recognition. The MHC class II DRB gene is multiplicated in the bank vole, Myodes glareolus, with different numbers of loci found in different individuals. Possessing large numbers of loci should increase the probability of pathogen recognition, but according to… (More)
