Identification of seven new TCRBV subfamilies in cattle (Bos taurus)
In cattle, the repertoire of TCRBV genes that encode the variable region of T-cell receptor β-chains has not been fully characterized. In this study, cattle TCRBV genes were amplified from mRNA by anchored polymerase chain reaction and sequenced. Eleven new TCRBV gene sequences were found, and classified into seven subfamilies distinct from those previously identified.
