Phylogenetic analysis and selection on MHC Class I sequences. A) Phylogenetic relationships among passerine MHC Class I, exon 3 sequences. Only one sequence with open reading frames were found in the zebra finch genome. The remaining sequences are from GenBank. B) Predicted amino acid sequences of the genomic sequence and one EST for MHC Class I. Stars represent sites showing evidence of selection in passerine birds. Note the similarity in the selected sites between raptors and passerines, both of which correspond well with the human PBR.
