The human T cell receptors (TcR) α-β and γ-δ are the products of four sets of genes on two chromosomes: T cell receptors α (TRA) and δ (TRD) on chromosome 14 at 14q11.2, T cell receptor β (TRB) on chromosome 7 at 7q35, and T cell receptor γ (TRG) on chromosome 7 at 7p15-p14. This appendix presents tabulated lists of the human TcR α, β, γ, and δ genes named in accordance with the International ImMunoGeneTics database and approved by the Human Genome Organization Nomenclature Committee in 1999. Two additional tables list corresponding nomenclatures for these genes.
