|Protein Name||BOLA class I histocompatibility antigen, alpha chain BL3-6|
|Amino Acid Lenth||360|
|Protein Existence Status||Reviewed: Experimental evidence at transcript level|
|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|
|Linking IDs||Bomi2308 Bomi2309 Bomi559 Bomi2616|
