29, 205–206. fr Marie-Paule Lefranc 1. Introduction The molecular synthesis and genetics of the immunoglobulin (IG) and Tcell-receptor (TR) chains are particularly complex and unique, as they include biological mechanisms such as DNA molecular rearrangements in multiple loci (three for IG and four for TR in human) located on different chromosomes (four in human), nucleotide deletions and insertions at the rearrangement junctions (or N-diversity), and somatic hypermutations in the IG loci (for review, see refs.
