Introgression from domestic goat generated variation at the major histocompatibility complex of Alpine ibex

PLoS Genetics

Christine GrossenDaniel Croll

Abstract

The major histocompatibility complex (MHC) is a crucial component of the vertebrate immune system and shows extremely high levels of genetic polymorphism. The extraordinary genetic variation is thought to be ancient polymorphisms maintained by balancing selection. However, introgression...read more
