The major histocompatibility complex (MHC) was extensively studied by SNELL (1976) in mouse (H-2) and by DAUSSET in human (HLA). It was found related with numerous diseases especially in human (DAUSSET and SVEJGAARD, 1977). Moreover, in mouse it is associated with genes involved in androgen hormone metabolism (GREGOROVA et al, 1977) and control of body size (SIMPSON and BLANN, 1982) among many other relationships.
