Legend:
Colors are according to IMGT color menu for genes.
The boxes representing the genes are not to scale. Exons are not shown.

IGH gene names are according to the IMGT nomenclature [2].
Single arrows show genes whose polarity is opposite to that of the D-J-C-CLUSTER comprising IGHD (D1 to D6)-IGHJ (J1 to J6)-IGHC (IGHM-IGHD-IGHE-IGHA).
