Table 5 Allele and genotype frequencies of the MHC class II DQA gene exon two in the two rabbit breeds experimetally infested with S. scabiei var. cuniculi

From: Comparative analysis of host resistance to Sarcoptes scabiei var. cuniculi in two different rabbit breeds

Group Genotype frequency Allele frequency χ2
QX 0.444 (n = 8) 0.556 (n = 10) 0.772 0.278 2.663
IRA 0.778 (n = 14) 0.222 (n = 4) 0.889 0.111 0.281
  1. Note: The genetic diversity of the MHC class II DQA gene exon two was analyzed by the polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) method with Mbo II enzyme. χ2 test showed that the restriction enzyme cutting site for Mbo II reached the Hardy–Weinberg equilibrium in two breed groups (P > 0.05)
