Table 2 List of human MHC class II and extended class II (xII) region genes used against the zebrafish whole-genome assembly. Genes with the suffix "like" are either gene fragments and/or highly similar to their human counterparts. Genes not identified by sequence similarity searches are marked as not found (NF). The official gene nomenclature for zebrafish is shown in brackets.
