In IMGT/GeneSearch, IMGT/GeneView and IMGT/LocusView:
The TRA/TRD gene positions are those in the clone contig which starts at the beginning of AF259072 (the most 5' clone) and ends at the last nucleotide of M64239 (the most 3' clone).
TRA/TRD start and end (72669-1661499 bp) correspond to the INIT-CODON of the TRAV1 gene (the most 5' gene in the locus) and to the last nucleotide of the TRAC gene POLYA_SIGNAL, respectively .
Clones (in blue) are those used for the complete sequencing of the mouse TRA/TRD locus.
These clones were later used to construct four contigs AE008683 to AE008686.
AE008683 and AE008684 overlap by 200 bp.
AE008684 and AE008685 overlap by 200 bp.
AE008685 and AE008686 overlap by 200 bp.
AE008683 (404892 bp) contains TRAV1 to TRAV7D-3. Position 1 of AE008683 corresponds to position 1 of AF259072 (the most 5' clone).
AE008684 (400099 bp) contains TRAV6D-4 to TRAV7-3.
AE008685 (400099 bp) contains TRAV6-4 to TRAV12-4.
AE008686 (461875 bp) contains TRAV13-5 to TRAC. The
last nucleotide of AE008686 corresponds to the last nucleotide of M64239 (the most 3' clone).
AE008686 to AE008686 (and all the clones used to construct these 4 contigs except M64239) are from Mus musculus129/SvJ strain. M64239 is from B10.D2-H2dm1.
