It is well established that natural killer (NK) cells confer resistance to many viral diseases, but in only a few instances the molecular mechanisms whereby NK cells recognize virus-infected cells are known. Here we show that CD94, a molecule preferentially expressed by NK cells, is essential for the resistance of C57BL/6 mice to mousepox, a disease caused(More)
The CD94 transmembrane-anchored glycoprotein forms disulfide-bonded heterodimers with the NKG2A subunit to form an inhibitory receptor or with the NKG2C or NKG2E subunits to assemble a receptor complex with activating DAP12 signaling proteins. CD94 receptors expressed on human and mouse NK cells and T cells have been proposed to be important in NK cell(More)
Hemophilia is treated by IV replacement therapy with Factor VIII (FVIII) or Factor IX (FIX), either on demand to resolve bleeding, or as prophylaxis. Improved treatment may be provided by drugs designed for subcutaneous and less frequent administration with a reduced risk of inhibitor formation. Tissue factor pathway inhibitor (TFPI) down-regulates the(More)
