IMGT/LIGM-DB: IMGT000003 (2583341 bp), dog (Canis lupus familiaris) IGL locus on chromosome 26

Dog (Canis lupus familiaris) IGL locus on chromosome 26

The orientation of the dog (Canis lupus familiaris) IGL locus on the chromosome 26 is forward (FWD).

Locus representation dog IGL

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 [2].
The Canis lupus familiaris IGL J-C-CLUSTER comprises 9 cassettes indicated by the numbers 1 to 9 (IGLJ1-IGLC1, IGLJ2-IGLC2, IGLJ3-IGLC3, IGLJ4-IGLC4, IGLJ5-IGLC5, IGLJ6-IGLC6, IGLJ7-IGLC7, IGLJ8-IGLC8 and IGLJ9-IGLC9, respectively).
Single arrows show genes whose polarity is opposite to that of the J-C-CLUSTER comprising IGLJ1-IGLC1 to IGLJ9-IGLC9.
