Table 1 MHC-DAB diversity in G. microtarsus and M. incanus

From: Selection, diversity and evolutionary patterns of the MHC class II DAB in free-ranging Neotropical marsupials

Species N DAB alleles DAB loci Nucleotide sequence Amino acid sequence
     Variable positions Ø differences Variable positions Ø differences
G. microtarsus 54 44 (+3) ≥ 4 93/195 (47.7%) 28.2 ± 2.6 (14.5%) 44/65 (67.7%) 15.9 ± 2.1 (24.5%)
M. incanus 56 8 ≥ 2 66/195 (33.8%) 25.6 ± 2.7 (13.1%) 30/65 (46.2%) 14.1 ± 2.2 (21.7%)
  1. The number of DAB alleles (+ sequences including a stop codon or a frameshift) in the samples (N) and the inferred minimum number of DAB loci are displayed for both species, as well as variable positions and the mean number of differences between alleles (Ø differences).
