Short summary
This study was conducted to identify the Ovar-DRB1 gene in the major histocompatibility (MHC) complex gene region by DNA sequencing in some native sheep breeds in Turkey. In total, 25 new alleles were revealed in Ovar-DRB1 in Turkish native sheep breeds, with 24 variable sites. The average pairwise genetic distance was 0.029 % for Ovar-DRB1. Two main groups were detected in Turkish sheep breeds. All Dağliç and Kivircik alleles and one allele from Karayaka, Malya and Sakiz are grouped together.
