Swine Leukocyte Antigen Diversity in Canadian Specific Pathogen Free Yorkshire and Landrace Pigs

Front Immunol
PMCID: 5350106
PMID: 28360911

[…] 7 SLA-2, and 36 SLA-3) and 145 polymorphic class II alleles (91 DRB1 and 54 DQB1) have been designated by the SLA Nomenclature Committee of the International Society for Animal Genetics (ISAG) in the Immuno Polymorphism Database (IPD)-MHC SLA sequence database.Yorkshire and Landrace pigs are widely distributed in the world. When every country develops breeding according to their need, characterist […]


An ontology for major histocompatibility restriction

J Biomed Semantics
PMCID: 4709943
PMID: 26759709
DOI: 10.1186/s13326-016-0045-5

[…] MHC developed for the StemNet project, using the well-established MHC nomenclature resources of the international ImMunoGeneTics information system (IMGT, http://www.imgt.org) for human data and The Immuno Polymorphism Database (IPD, http://www.ebi.ac.uk/ipd) for non-human species. It contains 118 terms for MHC across human, mouse, and dog. We were encouraged by the success of MaHCO in expressing […]


The assembly and characterisation of two structurally distinct cattle MHC class I haplotypes point to the mechanisms driving diversity

PMCID: 4539362
PMID: 26227296
DOI: 10.1007/s00251-015-0859-9

[…] re (v2.3.0; http://www.pacb.com/devnet/). Gene content was queried using BLAST (Altschul et al. ) against GenBank, all 114 known cattle MHC class Ia and MHC class Ib cDNA alleles contained within the Immuno Polymorphism Database (IPD-MHC; Release 1.3.0 (18 Nov. 2011)); http://www.ebi.ac.uk/ipd/mhc/bola; (Robinson et al. ), and all of the genes in the extended MHC class I region in the genome assem […]

DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0096973

[…] ent PCR from the same individual, or coming from two different individuals (including previously reported sequences in this category). The alleles found were validated and named by a curator from the Immuno Polymorphism Database (IPD) , .Clustal X software (v2.1) was used for aligning all the MHC-DRB exon 2 and exon 2+ intron 2 sequences , using BioEdit Sequence Alignment Editor software for manua […]
