Phylogenetic Trees of the MHC Class II Genes. a. MHC class II A gene phylogeny based on alignment of 240 nucleotides corresponding to the end of the β2 domain through to the cytoplasmic region of bat MHC class II sequences with class II sequences from other mammals. Branch support is indicated as the percentage out of 1000 bootstrap replicates and is shown where support is greater than 50%. b. MHC class II B gene phylogeny based on alignment of 567–594 nucleotides corresponding to the signal peptide through to the α2 domain of bat MHC class II sequences with class II sequences from other mammals. Branch support is indicated as the percentage out of 1000 bootstrap replicates and is shown where support is greater than 50%. Species names are: E. caballus (Eqca), G. gallus (Gaga), H. sapiens (Hosa), M. musculus (Mumu), O. aries (Ovar), O. cuniculus (Orcu), R. norvegicus (Rano), S. scrofa (Susc).
