What is the meaning of receptor repertoire?

Our DNA encodes many different types of receptors. Since just

about every cell of the body contains the exact same DNA, you would

think that all would have the same set of receptors too. But while

every cell does have the DNA necessary to make any receptor, each

cell only makes the receptors that are specific to its particular

cell type. The receptors made by a specific cell type are

collectively called that cell's receptor repertoire.
