Horse Class I and Class II sections expanded

With a large submission from the laboratory of Dr. Petr Horin, including over 100 new alleles combined for the class I loci 1, 2, 7, and Psi, and over a dozen for the class II DQA locus, the horse is now represented by over 170 alleles at identified loci. With new alleles being reported from a widening array of horse breeds, the diversity at the known horse MHC loci continues to grow.
