Identification of haplotypes of the chicken major histocompatibility complex (B)

  title={Identification of haplotypes of the chicken major histocompatibility complex (B)},
  author={Worthie E Briles and Ruth W. Briles},
The chromosomal region presently known to contain the major histocompatibility complex of the chicken was first detected in 1947 using alloimmune hemagglutinating reagents and was tentatively assigned the locus symbol D in studies on the time of development of cellular antigens (Briles et al. 1948) and on its role in inducing hemolytic disease among chicks from alloimmunized hens (Briles 1948). The locus symbol was subsequently changed to B to symbolize the second chicken blood group system… CONTINUE READING
