Correspondence between the different gene nomenclatures

All the IMGT human IG and TR gene name have been approved by the HUGO Nomenclature Commitee in 1999 and entered in the Genome Database and into Entrez Gene at NCBI, USA.

Human IGHV genes are listed from 3' (top of the table) to 5' (bottom of the table).

IMGT notes:
  1. (1) IGHV(V) genes are designated by a number for the subgroup, followed by an hyphen and a number for the localization from 3' to 5' in the locus [1-2].
  2. (2) Pseudogenes, which could not be assigned to subgroups with functional genes are designated by a roman number between parentheses, corresponding to the clans, followed by an hyphen and a number (followed, if necessary, by a second hyphen and number) for the localization from 3' to 5' in the locus. Clans comprise, respectively:
    • clan I: IGHV1, IGHV5 and IGLH7 subgroup genes
    • clan II: IGHV2, IGHV4 and IGHV6 subgroup genes and pseudogenes IGHV(II)
    • clan III: IGHV3 subgroup genes and pseudogenes IGHV(III)
    • clan IV: one pseudogene IGHV(IV)-44.
