Sound's like a great undergraduate exam question to me. I think you need
to do your own homework.  You can start with a good review such as Mark
Davis's "T cell receptor gene diversity and selection" Annual Rev
Biochem 1990;59:475-96 or any good textbook of immunology. Look it up on
your own rather than taking the easy way out -- you'll be better off for
it. --Dom Spinella
