Abstract [en]

The genomic organisation of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC) seems to vary considerably between different bird species. In order to understand this variation it is important to gather information from different species. We have, for the first time, investigated MHC class 11 polymorphism in a wader species, the great snipe (Gallinago media). Eleven alleles were found in five sequenced individuals; these come from at least three different loci, but RFLP data suggest that a larger number of genes may be present. For MHC genes, amino acid substitutions followed the, for MHC genes, general pattern of high non-synonymous substitution rates in peptide-binding regions, suggesting that the sequenced alleles may be expressed. The number of genes, lengths of introns and exon sequences of the great snipe MHC seem to be intermediate between those of chicken and passerine birds.
