The orientation of the mouse IGK locus on the chromosome is forward (FWD).
Colors are according to IMGT color menu for genes.
The boxes representing the genes are not to scale. Exons are not shown.

IGKV4-52 is not found in BAC clone AC153615. It is not yet known if IGKV4-52 represents an allele of the IGKV4-54 or a polymorphic gene by insertion deletion.
The D6Bhm9 probe (EMBL Accession number Z72363) is described in Schupp, I.W. et al., Immunogenetics, 95, 180-187 (1997).
tub: a- tubulin like (EMBL Accession number AJ235970).
sad: S-adenosyl methionine decarboxylase like (EMBL Accession number AJ132684).
The 5' enhancer (E5') is found between the IGKJ genes and the IGKC genes, and the 3' enhancer (E3') is located 8.5 kb downstream of the IGKC gene.
The 19 mouse (Mus musculus) IGKV subgroups belong to three clans (Figure IGKV clans). Clans comprise, respectively:
* When needed, indicate the presence of allele(s) with another functionality: see above House mouse (Mus musculus) IGK locus
