Notes on individual sequence variation in humans: immunoglobulin kappa light chain.


Little is known concerning the magnitude of variability in the nucleic acid sequence of DNA at the individual level. We have collected a large set of sequence data from the human immunoglobulin kappa light-chain-locus constant region (10,444 bp) and subgroup IV variable region (18,580 bp). For the constant region, absolute conservation of sequence was… (More)
