Structural features of transposed human VK genes and implications for the mechanism of their transpositions.


The genes encoding the variable, joining and constant regions of human immunoglobulin light chains have been localized to the short arm of chromosome 2. However, several VK genes lie outside of the locus: a single copy cluster of five VK genes is located on chromosome 22; an isolated but amplified VkI gene is found on chromosome 1; and several isolated VkI… (More)
