 A novel immunoglobulin (Ig) light chain isotype, termed IgL2, has been isolated from trout lymphoid tissues both by reverse transcription – polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and screening of cDNA libraries. The CL domain of the new isotype shares only 29% residues with a recently cloned trout IgL isotype, termed IgL1, which has some similarities to Cκ and Cλ isotype domains of several vertebrate species. Using anchored PCR, a VL element rearranged to CL2 was isolated. It is a member of a new VL… CONTINUE READING
