T-cell receptor

I wondered if the T-cell receptor was part of the immunoglobulin
superfamily or if it was  just Ig-like as many textbooks suggest. 

Given that its structure is very similar to antibody Fab regions and
that its genes rearrange in practically the same way as those of
antibodies, if it isn't actually an immunoglobulin to what family does
it belong to?

Thanks
Fred
