Contents Strategies of Natural Killer Cell Recognition and Signaling; Signal Transduction in Natural Killer Cells; Transcriptional Regulation of NK Cell Receptors; Extending Missing-Self? Functional Interactions Between Lectin-like Nkrp1 Receptors on NK Cells with Lectin-like Ligands; The CD2 Family of Natural Killer Cell Receptors; Immunobiology of Human NKG2D and Its Ligands; NKG2 Receptor-Mediated Regulation of Effector CTL Functions in the Human Tissue Microenvironment; Dendritic Cell-NK Cell Cross-Talk: Regulation and Physiopathology; NK Cell Activating Receptors and Tumor Recognition in Humans
Summary Natural Killer (NK) cells are large granular lymphocytes of the innate immune system and are involved in direct innate immune reactions against viruses, bacteria, and other triggers of pathology. This book focuses on the nature of recognition events by NK cells and address how these events are integrated to trigger these effector functions
