A Nomenclature Committee for factors of the dog major histocompatibility system or
dog leukocyte antigen (DLA) has been convened under the auspices of the International
Society for Animal Genetics (ISAG) to define a sequence-based nomenclature for the
genes of the DLA system. The remit of this committee includes: i) assignment of gene
names; ii) rules for naming alleles; iii) assignment of names to published alleles;
iv) assignment of names to new alleles; and v) rules for acceptance of new alleles.
