The 40th meeting of the IARC on August 7th 2019 considered the sequence IGHV3-21*01_S5868. The sequence represents IGHV3-21*01 C159T C164A in the IMGT numbering system. The committee noted a rearrangement frequency of 1.5%, with 9064 alignments including 5167 perfect matches to the inferred allele. Alignments were also seen to four other IGHV3-21 sequences, though only one of these sequences was abundant (IGHV3-21*01: 12914 alignments, 8386 unmutated alignments). Haplotyping based on IGHJ6 alleles confirmed the segregation of reads associated with these two alleles to the different haplotypes Alignments to the three other alleles shown in the genotype were at trivial levels (<0.01% of ‘unmutated’ alignments, in each case). There were 1394 different CDR3s associated with the inference, including 614 different CDR3s associated with unmutated alignments. The committee agreed that the sequence should be accepted as a Level 1 sequence as IGHV3-21*i01. In line with previous policy, the submitted sequence is recognized up to and including nucleotide 319. A trailing “.” in the affirmed sequence indicates IARC’s opinion that the sequence is likely to contain an additional 3’ nucleotide for which there is insufficient evidence to make an affirmation.
Reanalysis of the original submission at Meeting 43 of the IARC on October 7, 2019 again identified the same novel allele IGHV3-21*01_S5868 (IGHV3-21*01 C159T C164A) with 9370 sequences and 5226 perfect matches and 628 Unique CDR3s with unmutated Seqs. In this analysis only one other allele of IGHV3-21 was seen (as very rare inferences had been removed by IgDiscover filtering), IGHV3-21*01 with 13799 sequences and 8576 perfect matches giving a 40:60 allelic ratio. These alleles were very well separated by IGHJ6-based haplotype analysis (1:99 and 99:1, respectively). The re-analysis thus confirmed the inference of IGHV3-21*i01 as a Level 1 sequence. In line with previous policy, the submitted sequence is recognized up to and including nucleotide 319. A trailing “.” in the affirmed sequence indicates IARC’s opinion that the sequence is likely to contain an additional 3’ nucleotide for which there is insufficient evidence to make an affirmation.
