hypermutation, suggesting that cis-acting sequences outside the mutable region regulate and target mutation. However, almost nothing is known about the detailed molecular mechanisms or transacting proteins that are responsible for V-region hypermutation. Because the mutational process begins just downstream of the promoter and requires transcriptional en-hancers (Neuberger et al., 1998), it has been suggested Antibody diversity is generated through genetic and mo-that the initiation of… CONTINUE READING
