The orientation of the sheep (Ovis aries) IGL locus on the chromosome 17 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.
A double slash // indicates a gap in genome assembly. Distances in bp (base pair) or in kb (kilobase) associated with a double slash are taken into account in the length of the lines and included in the numbers displayed at the right end of the lines.
A dotted line ... indicates the distance in kb (kilobase) between the locus and its bornes (5' borne and the most 5' gene in the locus and/or 3' borne and the most 3' gene in the locus) on the top and bottom lines, respectively. These distances are not represented at scale and are not included in the numbers displayed at the right ends of these two lines.
IGL gene names are according to the IMGT nomenclature .
The Ovis aries IGL J-C-CLUSTER comprises 2 cassettes indicated by the numbers 1 and 2 (IGLJ1-IGLC1 and IGLJ2-IGLC2, respectively).
Single arrows show genes whose polarity is opposite to that of the J-C-CLUSTER.
Gene names of IGLV pseudogenes with frameshift(s) in the V-REGION are not displayed due to a lack of space in the locus map at the IMGT standardized scale (line = 200 kb). For all gene names, see Zoom x2.
