Bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) TRA/TRD locus

Locus representation dolphin TRA/TRD

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.

The Dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) TRA/TRD locus representation is Fig. 2A from: Linguiti G, Antonacci R, Tasco G, Grande F, Casadio R, Massari S, Castelli V, Consiglio A, Lefranc M-P, Ciccarese S.
Genomic and expression analyses of Tursiops truncatus T cell receptor gamma (TRG) and alpha/delta (TRA/TRD) loci reveal a similar basic public γδ repertoire in dolphin and human.

Updates include:
- addition of 3 V genes (TRAV24 P, TRAV24D P and TRDV5 P) and 2 TRAJ genes (TRAJ27 F and TRAJ55 P),
- correction of functionality for 2 TRAV genes: TRAV37 ORF (instead of F) and TRAV41 F (instead of ORF).
- correction of functionality for 1 TRDJ gene: TRDJ2 ORF (instead of F).
These modifications and corrections of functionality for the TRAJ genes are reported in Gene tables (see More information).
