Two strains of chickens selected for differential Marek's disease (MD) resistance or susceptibility were studied for the presence of the recently described Rfp-Y major histocompatibility complex (Mhc-like) haplotypes. MD resistant chickens from line N were fixed for the classical Mhc B21 haplotype, whereas MD susceptible line P chickens were fixed for the B19 haplotype. The Rfp-Y haplotypes were identified by restriction fragment polymorphism (RFP) analysis using enzymes and Mhc probes for B-G… CONTINUE READING
