"+" or "-" indicates if the gene sequences have been found (+) or not been found (-) rearranged (R), transcribed (T) and/or translated into protein (Pr). Arbitrarily that information is shown on the first line of each gene when the data have been confirmed by several studies.

Functionality is shown between parentheses, (F) and (P), when the accession number refers to rearranged genomic DNA or cDNA and the corresponding germline gene has not yet been isolated.
Functionality is shown between brackets, [F] and [P], when the accession number refers to genomic DNA, but not known as being germline or rearranged.

Orphon genes are designated by a number for the subgroup (if known) followed by a slash, OR (for Orphon), the chromosome number, a dash and a specific gene number

The 7 human (Homo sapiens) IGHV subgroups form three clans (Figure IGHV clans). One additional clan only contains one pseudogene. Clans comprise, respectively:

IMGT subgroup IMGT gene name IMGT allele name Fct Chromosomal localization R T Pr Positions in the locus IMGT/LIGM-DB reference sequences IMGT/LIGM-DB sequences from the literature
Clone names Accession numbers Positions in the sequence (V-REGION) Secondary accession numbers Clone names Accession numbers Positions in the sequence (V-REGION)

IMGT notes:
  1. (1) STOP-CODON in FR2-IMGT.
  2. (2) INSERTION of one nucleotide (a), leading to a frameshift, is probably a sequencing error. The sequence X92282, previously assigned to IGHV1/OR15-5*02, has been shown to correspond to IGHV1/OR21-1*01 (message sent by Ruth Seal (HGNC) to Marie-Paule Lefranc on the 24/03/2010).
  3. (3) No conserved 1st-CYS, deletion of ten nucleotides leading to a frameshift.
  4. (4) Unusual V-HEPTAMER and V-NONAMER sequences.
  5. (5) Frameshifts due to INSERTIONs and DELETIONs. The sequence described in the manuscript is different from the one submitted to the EMBL data library.
  6. (6) Unusual V-HEPTAMER sequence: cacatga instead of cacagtg.
  7. (7) HSeq:c15_43769, Hs T41390 sent by Ruth Lovering (HGNC) on the 15/12/2004 is a pseudogene owing to a deletion of 3' end L-PART1, L-INTRON-L and 5' L-PART-2, leading to a frameshift. It is not excluded that the other sequences of IGHV1/OR15-1 are pseudogenes instead of ORF, for the same reason.
  8. (8) Truncated V-GENE with completely divergent 3' region.
  9. (9) DELETION of one nucleotide in FR1-IMGT leading to a frameshift.
  10. (10) INSERTION of one nucleotide in FR1 leading to a frameshift.
  11. (11) Germline transcript.
  12. (12) STOP-CODON in FR1-IMGT.
