Mouse T-cell receptor variable gene segment families.

Author information

Paul-Ehrlich-Institute, Langen, Germany.


All mouse T-cell receptor alpha/delta, beta, and gamma variable (Tcra/d-, b-, and g-V) gene segments were aligned to compare the sequences with one another, to group them into subfamilies, and to derive a name which complies with the standard nomenclature. It was necessary to change the names of some V gene segments because they conflicted with those of other segments. The traditional classification into subfamilies was re-evaluated using a much larger pool of sequences. In the mouse, most V gene segments can be grouped into subfamilies of closely related genes with significantly less similarity between different subfamilies.
