Abstract Abstract. Here we describe two rainbow trout major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class I genes characterized from 5 phage genomic clones prepared from a single fish. Clone GC71 contains all exons except a leader peptide-encoding exon. An open reading frame is maintained, and thus the gene MhcOnmy-U71 could be expressed in this individual. The class I gene found on clone GC41 lacks exons encoding the leader peptide and cytoplasmic domain. This gene, MhcOnmy-U41p, is a pseudogene due to a deletion in the !2 domain-encoding exon causing premature termination. Both the Onmy-U71 and Onmy-U41p genes are distinguished by long introns between the exons encoding the !1 and !2 domains. Clone GC41 also contains the 3' exons of the LMP7/PSMB8 gene encoding the ânterferon-induced proteosome subunit of rainbow trout.
