Abstract

Major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class II DQB and DRA genes and class I gene of finless porpoises (Neophocaena phocaenoides) were investigated by single-strand conformation polymorphism and sequence analysis. The DRA, DQB, and MHC-I loci each contained 5, 14, and 34 unique sequenc...read more

HLA Genetic Variation

HLA genetic variation has been found to confer risk for a wide variety of diseases. Identifying these associations and understanding their molecular mechanisms is ongoing and holds promise for the development of therapeutics. Find the latest research on HLA genetic variation here.

Chromosomal Duplication

Chromosomal duplication is a result of extra genetic material within the area of the chromosome. The duplication may have no effect or may be expressed in the phenotype of that individual. Some duplications are thought to be of evolutionary selection. Discover the latest research on chromosomal duplication here.
