Complexity in the cattle CD94/NKG2 gene families

Abstract

Natural killer cell responses are controlled to a large extent by the interaction of an array of inhibitory and activating receptors with their ligands. The mostly nonpolymorphic CD94/NKG2 receptors in both humans and mice were shown to recognize a single nonclassical MHC class I molecule in each case. In this paper, we describe the CD94/NKG2 gene family in… (More)
