    Abstract

    The frequency and distribution of dog leucocyte antigens (DLA) class II-DQA1, -DQB1 and -DRB1 alleles were determined for 25 American Kennel Club (AKC) registered dog breeds, representing 360 dogs from each of the seven major performance categories. Six to twenty-eight (average n = 11) dogs were studied per group, with the exception of the Akita dog (n = 94). All dogs were unrelated with no common grandparents based on AKC pedigree records (F-value
