We have sequenced a segment of 150,102 nucleotides of canine major histocompatibility complex (MHC) DNA, corresponding to the junction of the class I and class III regions. The distal portion contained five class III genes including two tumor necrosis factor genes and the proximal portion contained five genes or pseudogenes belonging to the class I region. The order of the class III region genes was conserved as in the porcine and human MHC regions. The order of the class Ib loci from the… CONTINUE READING
