Thank you for visiting the IPD-MHC OLA sequence website. This site is intended to provide a source of information on the ovine leukocyte antigen (OLA) complex, the Major Histocompatibility Complex of domestic sheep Ovis aries as well as other species within the genus Ovis. This site is encouraged and supported by the comparative MHC steering committee of the International Society for Animal Genetics. Its purpose is to collate data on the ovine leukocyte antigens and to provide a forum for the analysis, verification and nomenclature of allelic polymorphisms in the genes and proteins of the ovine MHC.
