Tryptic peptide map analyses of five K- and three D-gene products of various H-2 haplotypes are presented. These data support earlier sequence studies and demonstrate that the variations in allelic gene products of the K or D loci are scattered throughout much of the polypeptide chains. Furthermore, the K allelic gene products are no more closely related to one another than they are to the D allelic gene products. This apparent lack of K-ness and D-ness places interesting constraints on the genetic organization and evolutionary history of the genes encoding the transplantation antigens.
