Abstract

The emergent availability in public databases of more complete genome assemblies allows us to improve genomic data obtained by classical molecular cloning. The main goal of this study was to refine the genomic map of the dromedary TRG locus by integrating our previous genomic data with the analysis of recent genomic assemblies. We identified an additional TRGC cassette, defined as a V-J-C recombination unit, located at the 5' of the locus and made up of five TRGV genes followed by three TRGJ genes and one TRGC gene. Hence, the complete dromedary TRG locus spans about 105 Kb and consists of three in tandem TRGC cassettes delimited by AMPH and STARD3NL genes at the 5' and 3' end, respectively. An expression assay carried out on peripheral blood showed the functional competency for the dromedary TRGC5 cassette and confirmed the presence of the somatic hypermutation mechanism able to enlarge the repertoire diversity of the dromedary γδ T cells.
