MHC genes were recently discovered in 3 classes of Echinodermata out of 5 ones: the Ophuirids, the Crinoïds and more recently: the Asterids. These genes belong to MHC Class I and MHC Class II. Echinids and Holothurids don’t present MHC genes.
- They were found more recently in a third class: Asterids
- The aim of this work is to summarize the different obtained results [1,2].
