Figure 4.

Phylogenetic tree constructed for a 201 bp fragment of the second exon of MHC class II DQA genes in the Scandinavian brown bear. Bayesian posterior probabilities above 70% are shown above branches. The allele marked with filled circle is expressed. The other sequences used to generate the tree are: Ailuropoda melanoleuca: Aime-DQA1*01 (GQ496171.1), Aime-DQA1*02 (GQ496172.1), Aime-DQA2*01 (GQ496178.1), Aime-DQA2*02 (GQ496179.1); Canis lupus: DLA-DQA (NM_001011726.1); Meles meles: Meme-DQA*01 (HQ908097.1), Meme-DQA*02 (HQ908098.1); Taxidea taxus: Tata-DQA*01 (HQ908102). Mus musculus sequence: Mumu-DQA (V00832.1) was used to root the tree.
