House mouse (Mus musculus) IGH locus on chromosome 12 (12F2) strain C57BL/6
The orientation of the mouse IGH locus on the chromosome is reverse (REV).
Colors are according to IMGT color menu for genes.
The boxes representing the genes are not to scale. Exons are not shown.
SWITCH sequences are represented by a
filled circle upstream of the IGHC genes.
The Mouse (Mus musculus) IGHV genes belong to 16 subgroups
(Gene tables: Mouse IGHV)
which are part of three clans (Figure IGHV clans).
Clans comprise, respectively:
- clan I: IGHV1, IGHV9; IGHV14 and IGHV15 subgroup genes and one pseudogene IGHV(I)
- clan II: IGHV2, IGHV3, IGHV8 and IGHV12 subgroup genes and pseudogenes IGHV(II)
- clan III: IGHV4, IGHV5, IGHV6, IGHV7, IGHV10, IGHV11, IGHV13 and IGHV16 subgroup
genes and pseudogenes IGHV(III).
