Secondry Information

Protein Function major histocompatibility complex (MHC) of cattle is known as the bovine leukocyte antigen (BoLA) and is located on chromosome 23; linked to variation in resistance to disease including bovine leukemia virus-induced lymphoma and mastitis
Biochemical Properties existence of up three expressed class I loci in cattle
Significance in milk influence traits such as milk yield, growth and reproduction, which are not often measured in humans, and variations in individual immune response to antigen; likely to play an important role in cattle immune responses
