To establish a highly informative screening system for immunologically relevant genes ("immunoprinting") we co-amplified via polymerase chain reaction (PCR) polymorphic exons plus adjacent intronic simple repetitive dinucleotide stretches in the T-cell receptor (Tcr) Vb6 and Major Histocompatibility Complex (MHC)-DRB loci in man and several ungulate species. In both gene families the basic structure of the simple repeat was found to be preserved for more than 70 x 10(6) years in all investigated species. The simple repeats exhibit extensive length variability. Distinct exon sequences are correlated with a defined repeat length and substructure. In addition, PCR and the oligonucleotides for typing were applicable to a broad range of species from different mammalian orders. Multiplex PCR of different members of the Tcr Vb6 family and MHC-DRB resulted in a complex pattern similar to an oligolocus fingerprint. Hence immunoprinting can be employed for searching for associations of immunologically relevant genes with diseases even across species barriers.
