Inhibitory MHC class I receptors were initially described on natural killer (NK) cells, where they participate in inducing NK-cell self-tolerance. Inhibitory NK-cell receptors (iNKRs) can also be expressed by diverse T-cell subsets, including NKT cells, CD8+αβ-T-cell receptor (αβ-TCR)+ T cells, CD4+αβ-TCR+ T cells and γδ-TCR+ T cells. Here, we review the factors and the differentiation programme associated with the expression of iNKRs by αβ-TCR+ T cells, as well as the consequences of iNKR… CONTINUE READING
