The variable lymphocyte receptors (VLRs) of jawless vertebrates such as lamprey and hagfish are composed of highly diverse modular leucine-rich repeats. Each lymphocyte assembles a unique VLR by rearrangement of the germline gene. In the lamprey genome, we identify here about 850 distinct cassettes encoding leucine-rich repeat modules that serve as sequence templates for the hypervariable VLR repertoires. The data indicate a gene conversion–like process in VLR diversification. Genomic analysis… Expand

TLDR
The existence of three major lymphocyte lineages and their development in lampreys, parallels the mammalian adaptive immune system and suggests that these three cell lineages were present in the common vertebrate ancestor approximately 500 million years ago. Expand
Organization of lamprey variable lymphocyte receptor C locus and repertoire development
TLDR
This analysis indicates that VLRC sequences are well conserved in sea lamprey (Petromyzon marinus), L. camtschaticum, and European brook lampreys (Lampetra planeri), and provides insight into the unique molecular strategies used for VL RC gene assembly and repertoire diversification. Expand
Expansions, diversification, and interindividual copy number variations of AID/APOBEC family cytidine deaminase genes in lampreys
TLDR
The findings suggest that, similar to APOBEC3 branch expansion in jawed vertebrates, the AID/APOBEC family has undergone substantial diversification in lamprey, possibly indicative of multiple distinct biological roles. Expand

TLDR
Differences in gene expression, localization, and degree of diversity suggest that the VLRA + and VLRC + lineages represent separate lineages of cellular immunity. Expand

TLDR
These findings suggest that three basic types of lymphocytes, one B‐like and two T‐like, are an essential feature of vertebrate adaptive immunity. Expand
The adaptive immune system of sea lamprey
TLDR
It is shown that lamprey and hagfish lymphocytes generate a large repertoire of variable lymphocyte receptors (VLR) by randomly assembling leucine-rich-repeat (LRR) gene segments, and the cellular and humoral responses of lamprey to different immunogens are characterized. Expand
Structure of a lamprey variable lymphocyte receptor in complex with a protein antigen
TLDR
The structure of an anti–hen egg white lysozyme (HEL) VLR, isolated by yeast display, bound to HEL is determined and it is likely that the generalized antigen-binding site of VLRs is defined. Expand
Yeast surface display of lamprey variable lymphocyte receptors.
TLDR
This work has isolated VLRs that specifically bind hen egg lysozyme, β-galactosidase, cholera toxin subunit B, R-phycoerythrin, and the blood group trisaccharides A and B, with binding affinities in the mid-nanomolar to mid-picomolar range. Expand
VLR-based adaptive immunity.
TLDR
The discovery of VLRs in agnathans illuminates the origins of adaptive immunity in early vertebrates and suggests reciprocal expression patterns of evolutionarily conserved interleukins and chemokines possibly underlie cell-cell interactions during an immune response. Expand
Selection of the lamprey VLRC antigen receptor repertoire
TLDR
Significant signatures for selection of the VLRC receptors that are expressed by one of the T-cell lineages of lamprey are identified; selection concerns the length of the receptor molecules and their N-terminal sequence diversity, and these findings pave the way to identifying the mechanistic basis of selection.

Somatic diversification of variable lymphocyte receptors in the agnathan sea lamprey
TLDR
The search for the phylogenetic roots of adaptive immunity in the lamprey has instead identified a new type of variable lymphocyte receptors (VLRs) composed of highly diverse leucine-rich repeats (LRR) sandwiched between amino- and carboxy-terminal LRRs. Expand
Antigen-receptor genes of the agnathan lamprey are assembled by a process involving copy choice
TLDR
It is reported that lamprey (Lethenteron japonicum) assemble their VLR genes by a process involving 'copy choice', and genomic organization permits initiation of copying anywhere in an LRR-encoding module for the generation of various hybrid LRRs. Expand

TLDR
Jawless-fish mode of VLR diversification starkly contrasts with the rearrangement of Ig V(D)J gene segments used by all jawed vertebrates to produce diverse repertoires of T and B lymphocyte antigen receptors. Expand
Diversity and Function of Adaptive Immune Receptors in a Jawless Vertebrate
TLDR
These findings reveal that two strikingly different modes of antigen recognition through rearranged lymphocyte receptors have evolved in the jawless and jawed vertebrates. Expand
Structural Diversity of the Hagfish Variable Lymphocyte Receptors*
TLDR
The analysis of sequence variability, prediction of protein interaction surfaces, amino acid composition analysis, and structural comparison with other LRR proteins suggest that the hypervariable concave surface is the most probable antigen binding site of the VLR. Expand
The evolution of adaptive immunity.
TLDR
The appearance of a lymphocyte-based recombinatorial system of anticipatory immunity in the vertebrates may have been driven by a need to facilitate developmental and morphological plasticity in addition to the advantage conferred by the ability to recognize a larger portion of the antigenic world.

The immune gene repertoire encoded in the purple sea urchin genome.
TLDR
An initial survey of the purple sea urchin genome for genes associated with immunity finds an elaborate repertoire of potential immune receptors, regulators and effectors, including unprecedented expansions of innate pathogen recognition genes. Expand
New insights into alternative mechanisms of immune receptor diversification.
TLDR
Although these molecules vary markedly in form and likely in function, growing evidence suggests that they participate in various types of host defense and thereby represent significant alternatives to current paradigms of innate and adaptive immune receptors. Expand
AID mutates E. coli suggesting a DNA deamination mechanism for antibody diversification
TLDR
It is shown that expression of AID in Escherichia coli gives a mutator phenotype that yields nucleotide transitions at dC/dG in a context-dependent manner, which indicates that AID functions by deaminating dC residues in DNA. Expand
An ancient evolutionary origin of the Rag1/2 gene locus.
TLDR
This finding strongly suggests that linked Rag1- and Rag2-like genes were already present and functioning in a different capacity in the common ancestor of living deuterostomes, and that their specific role in the adaptive immune system was acquired much later in an early jawed vertebrate. Expand
