MHC class I 14.7 (1.6) 44.8 (7.6) 10.6 (1.4) 25.0 (4.0) 87.0 (15.7) 17.5 (3.5)
MHC class II DRB 8.2 (1.4) 32.5 (6.5) 2.4 (0.8) 18.1 (3.9) 74.2 (15.6) 6.4 (2.3)
MHC class II DQA 3.0 (1.2) 12.0 (5.3) 0.0 6.2 (3.0) 25.1 (13.2) 0.0

Distances and standard error values are given as percentages per site; standard errors, obtained through 1000 bootstrap replicates, are in parentheses. K2P, Kimura 2-parameter models.
