H-2 allele specificity of the NK cell C-type lectin-like MHC class I receptor Ly49A visualized by soluble Ly49A tetramer.

Abstract

Ly49A is a C-type lectin-like receptor on NK cells that recognizes MHC class I ligands, H-2D(d) and D(k). The engagement of Ly49A with the ligands inhibits activation of NK cells and protects target cells from lysis by NK cells. Here we express the extracellular region of Ly49A with an N-terminal biotinylation tag in Escherichia coli to obtain soluble Ly49A… (More)
