Natural killer (NK) cells are immune effector cells that recognize both virally infected and malignant target cells. Unlike T and B cells, NK cells, do not belong to the adaptive immune system, and their activation and cytotoxicity is regulated via a series of non-rearranged cell surface receptors. These receptors transmit either activating or inhibitory signals, the summation of which is thought to dictate whether NK cell activation occurs or not. Functionally NK cells are able to kill target… CONTINUE READING
