Divergence in activation by poly I:C of human natural killer and killer cells


Interferons consistently enhance spontaneous cellular cytotoxicity (SCC) mediated by natural killer (NK) cells. More controversial is the ability of interferons to enhance antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC) mediated by killer (K) cells. Since NK and K cells appear to represent overlapping subpopulations of lymphocytes, the present study was… (More)
