Abstract

The past year has seen major advances in our understanding of the recombination mechanism by which antibody and T cell receptor genes are assembled during lymphoid development. The initial cleavage events can be carried out in vitro by purified RAG1 and RAG/ protein. In addition, a number of genes involved in later steps of the reaction have been cloned, opening the way for an in-depth biochemical analysis of this critical developmental process.
