In Kasparov article : *The operator K functor and extensions of $C^*$algebras* there is the definition of the two bifunctors $KKO : ralg^{op} \times ralg \to Ab$ and $KKR : Ralg^{op}_r \times Ralg_r \to Ab$. Where $ralg$ is the category of $C^*$ algebras over the real numbers, and $Ralg_r$ the category of complex $C^*$ algebras together with an antilinear involution $\bar \cdot $ (with $\bar{ab} = \bar a \cdot \bar b $.) The two functors take values in the category of abelian groups $Ab$

There is an equivalence of category $Ralg \to ralg_r$ wich take an algebra to its complexification with involution given by conjugation on complexe numbers.

The two functors of Kasparaov commutes with this identification.

Now, I don't understand why in the chapter 5 of his article Kasparov defines Bott elements $\alpha_{p,q} $ in $KR_{p-q}(\mathbb R^{p,q}) = KKR(C_0(\mathbb R^{p,q})\otimes Cl_{p,q}, \mathbb C)$ and only $\alpha_n$ in $KO_{n}(\mathbb R^{n}) = KKO(C_0(\mathbb R^{n})\otimes Cl_{n,0}, \mathbb R)$

Is there a legitimate reason to do such a restriction ?
