Print of this table: Martinez-Jean, C. et al., Exp. Clin. Immunogenet., 18, 255-279 (2001). PMID:11872956

Five unmapped genes (IGKV2-a, IGKV6-b, IGKV6-c, IGKV6-d, IGKV12-e), potentially functional, are not included.

Potential repertoire with orientation of transcription

Among the 94 functional genes, 33 are in the same orientation of transcription as the IGKJ genes, 60 are in the opposite orientation of transcription and must rearrange by a mechanism of inversion. The orientation of two IGKV4 genes (IGKV4-52 (F) and IGKV4-60 (P)) is unknown.
