  12. 12. CDR regions Stewart-Jones et al 2003 Nature Immunology Diagram highlighting the CDR loops of the T cell clone JM22 in complex with MP(58−66)−HLA-A2. The CDR loops are colored as follows: V α   CDR1, green; V α   CDR2, red; V α   CDR3, blue; V β   CDR1, magenta; V β   CDR2, orange; V β   CDR3, cyan. * MP(58-66) Influensa virus matrix protein
  13. 13. CDR3 length analysis Figure 1 . Description of the immunoscope technology. Lymphocytes derived from the blood are stimulated in vitro in the presence of the antigen. 3 days later RNA is extracted and cDNA is synthesized. 24 different PCR amplifications are performed (one for each V  /C  combination). 12 run off reaction s are performed for each V  n-C  PCR product, each one using a fluorescent reverse primer specific for one J  . Finally each run-off’s products are separated on the basis of length. Ria et al 2001 Current Molecular Medicine
