Maedi-Visna (MV) and ovine pulmonary adenocarcinoma (OPA) are two retroviral diseases occurring worldwide that affect adult sheep. Differences in incidence, which may be related to sheep-rearing and housing choices, as well as to genetics, and disease progression have been reported for both diseases. In this work four microsatellites located in immune-relevant regions, the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) region, interferon-γ and interleukin-12p35, were genotyped to determine their… CONTINUE READING
