Appendix 22. Polymorphism in the ABO gene that was observed among different species and subspecies of mice


We determined the partial nucleotide sequences of the mouse ABO genes from a variety of subspecies of mice (Mus musculus). Saitou played the major role in the characterization. We also determined the gene in another species of mouse (M. specifegus). We observed single nucleotide polymorphism at several positions.
