Retrospective Theses and Dissertations
The major histocompatibility complex (MHC) is a family of genes coding for molecules which play important roles in the immune response as well as many other cellular processes of a vertebrate organism. The understanding of the immune system of some of the domestic animals will have both practical value and theoretical significance. The purpose of this work was to study the MHC of the chicken (B) and the swine (SLA). First, in order to study the MHC class II gene structure of the chicken, a genomic library was constructed from an inbred chicken line G-B2 (MHC haplotype B[superscript]6 ...
