Title
Does the MHC confer protection against malaria in Bonobos?
Author
Abstract
The immunological factors that could explain the near absence of malaria parasites in bonobos are not yet understood. The MHC class I system, however, may play an important role, as particular bonobo allotypes show functional similarities to HLA-B*53/B*78, which are considered to confer protection against malaria in humans.
