Gene order comparisons for the selected class II loci from HLA, OLA, and BoLA. Genetic loci in class II region were compared by aligning HLA, OLA and BoLA at telemere→centromere orientation. The orthologous loci were linked by solid lines. Solid and open box represent the selected class II loci and non-MHC loci, respectively. Shaded carmine boxes indicate regions of conservation among species. Red ellipses indicate the potential breaking points.Tel: Telomere, Cen: Centromere.
