Side view (backbone model)
This figure shows the two associated V-DOMAINs and C-DOMAINs of a gamma-delta T cell receptor (gamma chain (PDB: 1hxm_B), delta chain (PDB: 1hxm_A).
The two V-DOMAINs, V-GAMMA and V-DELTA, correspond to the TRG V-J-REGION and TRD V-D-J-REGION, respectively.
The two C-DOMAINs, C-GAMMA and C-DELTA, are part of the TRG C-REGION and TRD C-REGION, respectively.
Only the extracellular domains are displayed. The carbohydrates are not shown.
In the PDB file, the sequences include 10 and 17 amino acids of the CONNECTING-REGION of the gamma and delta chains, respectively, however, the 3D structures only include amino acids up to positions 124 and 120, for the gamma and delta C-DOMAINs, respectively, according to the IMGT unique numbering for C-DOMAIN.
This image has been generated with the program RASMOL version 2.6  from the PDB file 1hxm , containing the atomic coordinates of the crystal structure of a human Vgamma9/Vdelta2 T cell receptor.
