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

IMGT notes:
  1. (1) TRBV genes are designated by a number for the subgroup [4] followed, whenever there are several genes belonging to the same subgroup, by an hyphen and a number for their relative localization in the locus.
    Orphons having been described for each of the following subgroups: TRBV 20, 21, 23, 24, 25 and 29, the single member gene in the main locus is designated by the subgroup number followed by an hyphen and the number 1. To date, no orphon has been reported which belongs to subgroup 22, therefore the IMGT designation of the single member gene is TRBV22.
  2. (2) 26S1 was defined in [5].
