Assignment of Nesospiza MHCIIβ peptide binding sites. Alignment of MHCIIβ exon 2 amino acid sequences of Neso01 – 23 indicating amino acid differences between Groups 1–3 sequences. Amino acid identity is shown by “.” and an alignment gap by “-”. Alignment with human HLA-DRB*04 (GenBank accession: NM_021983) was used to assign peptide binding sites (*) according to Brown et al. and Tong et al.
