The VK gene segments that have been transposed from the kappa locus on the short arm of chromosome 2 at 2p11-12 to other chromosomal sites are called orphons. The 18 VK orphons sequenced up to now carry defects and are to be considered pseudogenes. We now describe the VKI gene segment V108 whose sequence is without any defects and which was localized to the… CONTINUE READING
