The human natural killer (NK) receptor complex encompasses a region of about 2 Mb on the short arm of chromosome 12. It contains at least 18 lectin-like receptor genes, of which some are expressed in NK and NK/T cells and function as NK receptors. Close to the CD94 and NKG2 NK receptor genes in the centromeric part, a novel family of genes, expressed in myeloid, dendritic and/or endothelial cells, recently became evident. These genes encode a receptor for oxidized low density lipoprotein in… CONTINUE READING
