Expression and functional role of dipeptidyl peptidase IV (CD26) on human natural killer cells.

Abstract

The expression and functional role of dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DP IV, CD26, EC 3.4.14.5) was studied on human natural killer (NK) cells. Here we show that freshly isolated NK cells do express only low amounts of DP IV. However, after IL-2 stimulation of NK cells (70% purity) surface DP IV expression was significantly increased in a subpopulation (30%) of… (More)
