Expression of H-2Dd and H-2Ld mouse major histocompatibility antigen genes in L cells after DNA-mediated gene transfer.

Among the more than 20 H-2-like genes in the BALB/c mouse genome, there are two classical transplantation antigens (H-2Dd and H-2Ld) encoded at the D-end of the major histocompatibility complex. Here we report the identification of a bacteriophage clone that encodes H-2Dd. The H-2Dd gene was identified by nucleotide sequence analysis and by characterization… (More)
