The NKG2 family of genes encodes at least four different type II transmembrane molecules (NKG2-A, NKG2-B, NKG2-C and NKG2-E) which contain a C-lectin domain. These proteins have been shown to be covalently associated with CD94, another C-type lectin member. The heterodimers are involved in natural killer cell-mediated recognition of different HLA-allotypes. Here we describe the cloning of a new NKG2-related gene, termed NKG2-F, localized 25 kb from NKG2-A as well as its relationship with the… CONTINUE READING
