Sequence analysis of a polymorphic Mhc class II gene in Pacific salmon

  title={Sequence analysis of a polymorphic Mhc class II gene in Pacific salmon},
  author={Kristina M. Miller and Ruth E. Withler},
Polymorphism of the nucleotide sequences encoding 149 amino acids of linked major histocompatibility complex (Mhc) class II 131 and 132 peptides, and of the intervening intron (548–773 base pairs), was examined within and among seven Pacific salmon (Oncorhynchus) species. Levels of nucleotide diversity were higher for theB1 sequence than forB2 or the intron in comparisons both within and between species. For the codons of the peptide binding region of the BI sequence, the level of nonsynonymous… CONTINUE READING
