Lymphoid cell development is an ordered process that begins in the embryo in specific sites and progresses through multiple differentiative steps to production of T- and B-cells. Lymphoid cell production is marked by the rearrangement process, which gives rise to mature cells expressing antigen-specific T-cell receptors (TCR) and immunoglobulins (Ig). While most transcripts arising from TCR or Ig loci reflect fully rearranged genes, germline transcripts have been identified, but these have...[Show more]
