IPD-MHC Database

Canines (DLA)

It is essential to have a consistent and universal nomenclature for MHC alleles, and to facilitate this, a Canine MHC Nomenclature Committee has been established under the auspices of the International Society for Animal Genetics (ISAG). This committee reviews all nucleotide sequences as they are produced and assigns appropriate allele names.

We have listed all the currently known alleles, as nucleotide sequence alignments, for DLA class I and class II loci in the following tables. New nomenclature is used where possible, and tables of previous equivalents are given. Accession numbers and references for published sequences are listed.

The alignments used have been curated by;
