Allelic polymorphism of Ovar-DRB1 exon2 gene and parasite resistance in two dairy sheep breeds

The Ovar-DRB1 gene locus is one of the most polymorphic genes of the Major Histocompatibility Complex (Ovar-MHC) and holds a functional role to antigen presentation. The aim of this study was: a) to describe the Ovar-DRB1 locus variability in two dairy Greek sheep breeds and b) to investigate associ...
