Killer cell immunoglobulin-like receptor gene diversity in a Caucasian population of southern Brazil.

Abstract

Killer immunoglobulin-like receptors (KIR) regulate the activity of natural killer and T cells through an interaction with specific human leucocyte antigen (HLA) class I molecules on target cells. Diversity in KIR gene content, KIR allelic and haplotype polymorphism has been observed between different ethnic groups. However, most population studies on KIR… (More)
