Immunoglobulin (IG) and T cell Receptor (TR) Synthesis

IG synthesis

The molecular synthesis of the Immunoglobulins (Ig) and T cell Receptors (TcR) includes complex mechanisms such as DNA rearrangements, nucleotide insertions and deletions, and for the Ig, somatic hypermutations.
Number of genes are from Human (Homo sapiens) potential germline repertoires and IMGT/GENE-DB.
