NK lytic-associated molecule (NKLAM) is a protein involved in the cytolytic function of NK cells. It is weakly expressed in resting NK cells but upon target cell stimulation or after incubation with cytokines that enhance NK killing, NKLAM mRNA levels increase and protein is synthesized and is targeted to cytoplasmic granule membranes. We have previously(More)
Natural killer lytic-associated molecule (NKLAM) is an E3 ubiquitin ligase that plays a major role in the cytolytic activity of NK cells. NKLAM is rapidly synthesized and then targeted to the granule membranes of NK cells upon NK activation. Previous studies have shown an essential role for NKLAM in NK killing activity in vitro. These findings were extended(More)
