abstract

  • A cattle BAC library derived from an MHC homozygous animal was screened for MHC class I genes. This revealed at least nine class I-related genes in a contig spanning approximately 400 kb, and several additional genes on other clones. The three classical class I genes expressed on this haplotype (A14) were shown to be distributed over a region at most 212 kb apart.
