Ferret (Mustela putorius furo) TRB locus

Locus representation ferret TRB

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

TRB gene names are according to the IMGT nomenclature [1].
Single arrows show genes whose polarity is opposite to that of the D-J-C-CLUSTER comprising TRBD1-TRBJ(J1-1 to J1-6)-TRBC1-TRBD2-TRBJ(J2-1 to J2-6)-TRBC2.
