In cattle (bovine, Bos taurus) and sheep (ovine, Ovis aries), the TRG genes are organized in two loci on chromosome 4:

The TRG1 locus at 4q3.1 is syntenic to the human TRG locus at 7p14, whereas the TRG2 locus at 4q2.2 is a peculiarity of the cattle and sheep.

Sheep (Ovis aries) TRG locus on chromosome 4 (4q3.1 and 4q2.1)

Locus representation sheep TRG

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

Arrows indicate the TRGC cassettes and the transcriptional orientation of their genes.
