Artiodactyl emergence is accompanied by the birth of an extensive pool of diverse germline TRDV1 genes


Molecular cloning of cDNA from γ/δ T cells has shown that in sheep, the variable domain of the δ chain is chiefly determined by the expression of the TRDV1 subgroup, apparently composed of a large number of genes. There are three other TRDV subgroups, but these include only one gene each. To evaluate the extent and the complexity of the genomic TRDV… (More)
