Great links for making sense of TCR nomenclature!

Mouse Vb6 is the same as TRBV19.  Human Vb3 is the same as TRBV28. It´s confusing, to say the least.

Here are some links for finding antibodies for different TCR genes!!:

For a bit more of an overview, as suggested to me by Dr. Daniel Pellicci, have a look at “Correspondence between nomenclatures” also at IMGT /  http://www.imgt.org/IMGTrepertoire/LocusGenes/#J
