  1. Mean nucleotide and amino acid distances among putative alleles from MHC class II β exon 2. Nucleotide distances are corrected for multiple substitutions with the Kimura 2-parameter model and amino acid distances are corrected using expectations from the Poisson distribution. Standard errors are based on 1000 bootstrap replicates and given in parentheses. PBR peptide binding region
