About this book

The book provides up-to-date summaries on the main systems of blood group antigens and MHC molecules in nonhuman primates. For each system, the human antigens are described and used as a reference for comparison with their counterparts in apes and monkeys. The emphasis is on the molecular structure of the gene products, the evolutionary pathways and presumed mechanisms by which the systems have evolved. All articles are written in such a way that they can serve as an introduction to the field for nonexperts and, at the same time, as a handbook for experts. Numerous tables, diagrams, and figures provide overviews of antigen structures and their distribution in different species and evolutionary relationships. Extensive reference lists guide the reader through the literature on each topic.

Reviews

"The extensive list of references, MHC nucleotide sequences of nonhuman primates, and numerous tables and figures make this a valuable handbook for experts in the field of nonhuman primates. It also provides a comprehensive review of human blood and MHC antigens for clinicians in the fields of hematology, transplantation and transfusion medicine." International Journal of Hematology
