 A new immunoglobulin heavy-chain gene with some homology to mammalian IgD was recently cloned from the channel catfish and Atlantic salmon, two species of teleost fish. We have cloned and sequenced a new H-chain gene from Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua L.) which has clear similarities to these genes, but which also differs in several ways. The similarities of catfish, salmon, and cod delta to the mammalian delta genes are sequence homology, location immediately downstream of IgM (mu), and… CONTINUE READING
