Natural killer receptor protein 1 (NKR-P1, a family of proteins), which is a dimeric transmembrane protein predominantly on rat and murine natural killer cells, contains an extracellular motif related to calcium-dependent animal lectins. The domain architecture of this protein and the finding that its cross-linking with antibody results in activation of natural killer cells make it a promising candidate for a receptor function. We have expressed a full-length NKR-P1 protein of the rat in COS… CONTINUE READING
