IMGT/LIGM-DB: IMGT000015 (56058 bp), bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) TRG locus.

Bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) TRG locus

Locus representation dolphin TRG

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

TRG gene designations according to the IMGT nomenclature [1].
Single arrows show genes whose polarity is opposite to that of the J-C-CLUSTER comprising TRGJ(J1 to J3)-TRGC.

The Dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) Locus representation is Fig. 1A from: Linguiti G, Antonacci R, Tasco G, Grande F, Casadio R, Massari S, Castelli V, Consiglio A, Lefranc M-P, Ciccarese S.
Genomic and expression analyses of Tursiops truncatus T cell receptor gamma (TRG) and alpha/delta (TRA/TRD) loci reveal a similar basic public γδ repertoire in dolphin and human.
