Table 4 The frequencies of the 8 cytochrome B alleles in M. himalayana from the 4 areas with different susceptibility to WHV infection

From: Chinese woodchucks with different susceptibility to WHV infection differ in their genetic background exemplified by cytochrome B and MHC-DRB molecules

  1. Cytochrome B sequences from 37 Chinese woodchucks were obtained, 11 from TR area, 8 from TD area, 9 from GD area, and 9 from WL area. The frequencies of the 8 cytochrome B alleles in the animals from the four areas were calculated
