"+" 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.

Note that AE000661 encompasses M94081 from TRAJ61 to TRAJ46, and AE000662 encompasses M94081 from TRAJ45 to TRAJ1. Sequencing and/or typing errors initially detected by IMGT in M94081 sequence (TRAJ15, TRAJ36, TRAJ37) have been corrected with the author's authorization (B.K.) in EMBL (11/97). These errors have not yet been corrected in AE000662 sequence.

Invariant TRAV10-TRAJ18 (previously Valpha24-JalphaQ), NK T rearrangements. The "invariant" TR alpha chain of the human CD161+ T cells which recognize CD1d results from the TRAV10-TRAJ18 (previously Valpha24-JalphaQ) rearrangement. CD161 is expressed by ~ 15 % of human T cells but only a very small fraction of these CD161+ T cells are invariant NK T cells (<0,1 % of total T cells and <1 % of CD161+ T cells in most donors) [Exley, M.A. et al., Current Protocols in Immunology, Wiley, J. and Sons, New York, 14, 14.11.1-14.11.13 (2002)].

IMGT notes:
  1. (1) Non canonical J-HEPTAMER: GGGCATG instead of CACTGTG, and non canonical J-NONAMER: ATTCTGT instead of GGTTTTTGT.
  2. (2) Non canonical J-HEPTAMER: TACGGTA instead of CACTGTG.
  3. (3) Note in the J-REGION: Phe-Ala-X-Gly instead of Phe-Gly-X-Gly, however Ala and Gly are both very small amino acids, this change does not pose a structural problem
  4. (4) unexpected J-SPACER length (7 nt instead of 12 nt), noncanonical J-NONAMER: tgattttgc instead of ggtttttgt and noncanonical J-HEPTAMER: agatgtg instead of cactgtg.
  5. (5) Non canonical J-HEPTAMER: CACTATG instead of CACTGTG.
  6. (6) noncanonical J-MOTIF: Cys-Gly-X-Gly instead of Phe-Gly-X-Gly. The functionality of TRAJ35*01, initially considered as ORF owing to the presence of Cys (C118) instead of Phe (F118) in the J-MOTIF, has been changed to F (functional) as TRAJ35*01 has been found rearranged and expressed in several specific cDNA clones (comments added by G. Folch and M.-P. Lefranc on the 23/01/2019, following the identification of an additional clone and a question by C. Joos (Germany)).
  7. (7) STOP-CODON in J-REGION.
  8. (8) Note that the first codon of the germline J-REGION is a STOP-CODON which may disappear during rearrangements.
  9. (9) Defective DONOR-SPLICE t/ct instead of n/gt.
  10. (10) 5'UTR of TRAJ29 gene.
  11. (11) Positions in the locus (J-GENE) and positions in the sequence (J-REGION) are those in the Accession number M94081.
  12. (12) Partial J-REGION in 5' side.
