Mass spectral data for 64 eluted peptides and structural modeling define peptide binding preferences for class I alleles in two chicken MHC-B haplotypes associated with opposite responses to Marek's disease

Abstract

In the chicken, resistance to lymphomas that form following infection with oncogenic strains of Marek's herpesvirus is strongly linked to the major histocompatibility complex (MHC)-B complex. MHC-B21 haplotype is associated with lower tumor-related mortality compared to other haplotypes including MHC-B13. The single, dominantly expressed class I gene (BF2… (More)
