IGKV clans
  • Each IGKV subgroup is represented with one sequence per species chosen at random among the functional genes, except for IGKV16-102*01, IGKV7-3*01 which are pseudogene, and IGKV6-21 which is an ORF.
  • Species name abbreviations are shown with the IMGT 6 letters code.
  • Tree was generated using IMGT/PhyloGene [1,2].
  • Clans are colored using TreeDyn.
