Table 5 The frequencies of the 7 MHC-DRB1 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. The MHC class II DRB1 sequences from 19 Chinese woodchucks were obtained, 9 from TR area, 2 from TD area, 3 from GD area, and 5 from WL area. The frequencies of the 7 MHC-DRB1 alleles in the animals from the four areas were compared
