2008 BMC Bioinformatics  
Partitioning the functional antibody sequences to their sourcing germline gene segments is vital not only for understanding antibody maturation but also for promoting the potential engineering of the therapeutic  ...  In the adaptive immune system, variable regions of immunoglobulin (IG) are encoded by random recombination of variable (V), diversity (D), and joining (J) gene segments in the germline.  ...  Yeo WeeKiang for helping us improving the English writing, and the anonymous reviewers for their constructive comments. We also thank Dr. Wu Wei for fruitful and helpful discussion.  ...

2014 PLoS Pathogens  
The process of antibody ontogeny typically improves affinity, on-rate, and thermostability, narrows polyspecificity, and rigidifies the combining site to the conformer optimal for binding from the broader  ...  The ontogeny of 4E10, an autoreactive antibody with unexpected combining site flexibility, was delineated through structural and biophysical comparisons of the mature antibody with multiple potential precursors  ...  Acknowledgments We would like to thank Tim Vanden Bos and Madeline LaPatra for assistance with protein production.
