Can anyone tell if there is a paper discussing the sequencing of the
chicken heavy chain Ig locus?  Supossedly it is mentioned that the
chicken lacks both IgD and IgE, but we haven't been able to find this
publication.  Several investigators from several universities have
heard rumors about this, but none has actually seen this paper, or
name any authors.  Any information would be really appreciated.
  Thanks in advance,    jebutler at
