Human myeloid cells express an activating ILT receptor (ILT1) that associates with Fc receptor gamma-chain.

Ig-like transcripts (ILTs) encode cell surface receptors expressed on myeloid and lymphoid cells that are structurally and functionally related to killer cell inhibitory receptors. One ILT, designated ILT1, contains a short cytoplasmic domain that lacks sequence motifs implicated in signal transduction. Its function is unknown. Similar short cytoplasmic… CONTINUE READING
