This book represents original findings and observations that were made recently on the role and function of MHC proteins in different laboratories around the globe. The articles in this book cover topics from the importance of MHC diversity to the health of the wildlife to intimate molecular mechanisms of MHC exchange between cells. This book will be useful to a wide range of scientists and clinicians who are working in the field of immunology, transplantation and cancer research. (Imprint: Nova Biomedical )
