CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Bovine immunogenetics.

This chapter covers bovine immunogenetics. Significant advances that have been made in describing the genetics of the bovine immune system receptors and major histocompatibility complex (MHC) molecules that are involved in presenting peptides to T cells to engage their so-called T cell receptor...

CABI Book Chapter Info
Cover for Canine immunogenetics.

Access to genome sequences has rapidly driven studies into canine cytokines/chemokines and their receptors. An extensive number of canine cytokine/chemokine genes have now been characterized, and the level of polymorphism seen across breeds is now being established. It is likely that such studies...

Cover for Bovine viral diseases: the role of host genetics.

This chapter explores the major viral diseases of cattle and identifies those that are likely to be amenable to control assisted by host genetic selection, using either known polymorphisms in disease resistance genes or whole-genome approaches. Candidate genes for viral resistance include host...
