In the last 5 years, HLA class II genotyping methods have been adapted for genotyping of class II loci in rhesus macaques. Since previously published typing protocols were used on samples that were collected and stored under ideal conditions, it was of interest to determine if these methods were adequate for genotyping a large collection of archival samples from which DNA had been isolated and stored under various conditions. Established macaque DQA1 typing protocols were modified to optimize… CONTINUE READING
