The IMGT allele table refers to the V-REGION polymorphism. It does not include polymorphisms in the other parts of the V-GENE. V-REGION alleles are only described for genes which have at least one Functional or ORF allele. The accession number of a reference sequence is given for each allele.

Click on a gene name to get the alignment of the corresponding V-REGION alleles.
Click on an accession number to get the sequence and additional information (IMGT annotations, IMGT flat file, Coding regions...).

IMGT notes:
(1) Sequences which could not be assigned to the proximal or to the distal V-CLUSTER gene have been aligned with sequences of both genes. Both allele designation resulting from this alignment are given, separated by a dash, and mutation description is given by comparison to allele *01 of both genes.
Ex: Sequence Z00006 is designated as IGKV1-13*02/1D-13*02.
(2) An ORF sequence also exists for this V-REGION allele, due to a non-canonical heptamer.
(3) In EMBL, a new accession number M27751 was created, the original accession number X12688 becoming secondary accession number of M27751.
