IG and TR orphons (overview): Human

The orphons belong to 15 IG chromosomal orphon sets and to one TR chromosomal orphon set.

There are 81 identified orphons:

There is only one processed gene (IGHEP2) on chromosome 9, among the 84 identified orphons.

Orphon IMGT/LIGM-DB accession numbers are reported in Gene tables.
