    Immunogenetics 49:158-70. 1999
    ..The number of transcribed genes and the numerous RFLP fragments found so far suggest that the great reed warbler does not have a "minimal essential Mhc" as has been suggested for the chicken...

    A Langefors
    Department of Animal Ecology, Ecology Building, Lund University, 223 62 Lund, Sweden
    Mol Ecol 9:215-9. 2000
    ..Both RFLP using different probes, and the two PCR-based methods using three different primer pairs, suggest that there is only a single Mhc class II B gene in the Baltic populations of Atlantic salmon...

    ..salmonicida. Our results support the hypothesis that MHC polymorphism is maintained through pathogen-driven selection acting by means of frequency-dependent selection rather than heterozygous advantage...

    B Hansson
    Department of Animal Ecology, Ecology Building, Lund University, S 223 62 Lund, Sweden
    Mol Ecol 9:1529-38. 2000

    H Westerdahl
    Department of Animal Ecology, Lund University, Sweden
    Immunogenetics 52:92-100. 2000
