Abstract

The canine Major Histocompatibility Complex is referred to as DLA (for dog leukocyte antigen). There are no published studies on DLA segregation in the dog, so this part of the DLA workshop aimed to collect DNA from multigeneration families of different breeds of dogs. Twenty-two families of dogs were submitted to the workshop, comprising 313 individuals, of which 247 had one or both parents available.
