    J Immunol 170:6016-23. 2003
    ..Analysis of J chain sequences in diverse species is in agreement with accepted phylogenetic relationships, with the exception of the earthworm, suggesting that the reported presence of J chain in invertebrates should be reassessed...
  2. pmc Diversity and repertoire of IgW and IgM VH families in the newborn nurse shark
    Lynn L Rumfelt
    Department of Microbiology and Immunology, University of Miami School of Medicine, Miami, FL 33101, USA
    BMC Immunol 5:8. 2004
    ..This nurse shark study examined the IgM and IgW VH repertoire from birth through adult life, and analyzed the phylogenetic relationships of these gene families...

    Department of Microbiology and Immunology, School of Medicine, University of Maryland, 655 W Baltimore Street, Rm 13 009, Baltimore, MD 21202, USA
    Dev Comp Immunol 29:417-30. 2005
    ..Using monoclonal antibodies, we establish the presence of two classes of Igs in nurse shark eggs: 7S IgM and IgNAR. The potential transfer of immunoglobulins from elasmobranch eggs is discussed...
