Herein, we report the DNA sequence of two human CD1 genes, R2 and R3, distinct from those encoding the CD1a, -b and -c antigens. Both genes appear to have an exon/intron structure analogous to the previously analyzed CD1 genes and to be functional on the basis of their sequence. Analysis of the variability patterns, potential intramolecular interactions and predicted secondary structure profile on an alignment of all known CD1 alpha chains suggest some shared structural features with major… CONTINUE READING
