These receptors rearrange their variable, diversity and joining—or V(D)J—gene segments during lymphocyte maturation to create sequence, and hence structural, diversity. In this way, the vertebrate immune system can mount a defense against an infinite variety of microbial pathogens. The… CONTINUE READING
