Entry term(s) genes de Ig
Scope note: Genes que codifican las distintas subunidades de las INMUNOGLOBULINAS, por ejemplo, los GENES DE LAS CADENAS LIGERAS DE LAS INMUNOGLOBULINAS y los GENES DE LAS CADENAS PESADAS DE LAS INMUNOGLOBULINAS. Los genes de las cadenas ligeras y pesadas están presentes como segmentos de genes en las células germinales. Los genes completos se crean cuando los segmentos se entremezclan y ensamblan (REORDENAMIENTO GÉNICO DEL LINFOCITO B) durante la maduración del LINFOCITO B. Los segmentos génicos de los genes de las cadenas ligeras y pesadas de las células germinales se simbolizan como V (variable), J (de unión) y C (constante). Los genes de las cadenas pesadas de las células germinales tienen un segmento D (diversidad) adicional.

Scope note: Genes encoding the different subunits of the IMMUNOGLOBULINS, for example the IMMUNOGLOBULIN LIGHT CHAIN GENES and the IMMUNOGLOBULIN HEAVY CHAIN GENES. The heavy and light immunoglobulin genes are present as gene segments in the germline cells. The completed genes are created when the segments are shuffled and assembled (B-LYMPHOCYTE GENE REARRANGEMENT) during B-LYMPHOCYTE maturation. The gene segments of the human light and heavy chain germline genes are symbolized V (variable), J (joining) and C (constant). The heavy chain germline genes have an additional segment D (diversity).
