Lamprey VLRB Response to Influenza Virus Supports Universal Rules

Abstract

Immunoglobulins (Igs) are a crown jewel of jawed vertebrate evolution. Through 12 recombination and mutation of small numbers of genes, Igs can specifically recognize a 13 vast variety of natural and man-made organic molecules.
