Atlantic salmon and rainbow trout possess a single classical MHC class I locus, UBA, and a single classical MHC class II locus consisting of closely linked DAA (IIA) and DAB (IIB). Included in the database are full-length and nearly complete peptide binding domain-coding sequences from published studies and from the EMBL and NCBI databases.
The number of sequences presently described in this database inlcude:
In an attempt to be consistent, where possible the following rules were applied:
For consistency, many of the sequences have been renamed since their initial publication. Original names other than the current IPD database names are listed here as “Local names”. In April 2011 a number of changes were made to the allele name, the previous IPD names can be found under "Previous IPD name".
