Suids

Welcome to the IPD-MHC Swine Leukocyte Antigen (SLA) website. The site is intended as a resource for information on the nomenclature and DNA sequence data for the genes of the swine MHC complex. The data presented represents work published or submitted to public databases by many authors and has been compiled and edited by the members of the SLA Nomenclature of the International Society for Animal Genetics (ISAG).

Nomenclature

Strict quality standards for DNA sequencing are essential to prevent naming of large numbers of non-existent alleles. For this reason a nomenclature guideline for acceptance of new sequences for allele name assignment is available.
