Mechanism of inhibition of human natural killer activity by ultraviolet radiation.


Ultraviolet radiation (UVR) has been shown to inhibit various immune functions in vivo and in vitro. We have confirmed that UVR inhibits human natural killer (NK) activity in vitro and have shown that UVR inhibits human ADCC. In this report, the mechanism by which UVR inhibits NK function was investigated by analyzing the stage at which the inhibiting… (More)
