Abstract

Natural killer (NK) cells (called "third population cells" many years ago because they did not bear surface markers of the first two defined populations, B cells and T cells) are now known to occupy a pivotal position in the immune system, straddling the "divide" between the innate and adaptive responses. Natural killer cells are capable of production of… (More)
