Comprehensive identification of MHC class II alleles in a cohort of Chinese rhesus macaques
Immunogenetics
The Rhesus macaque is a very important animal model for various human diseases, especially for AIDS and vaccine research. The susceptibility and/or resistance to some of these diseases are related to the major histocompatibility complex (MHC). To gain insight into the MHC background and to facilitate the experimental use of Chinese rhesus macaques, Mamu-DPB1, Mamu-DQB1 and Mamu-DRB alleles were investigated in 30 Chinese rhesus macaques through gene cloning and sequencing.
