THE ROLE OF NATURAL CYTOTOXICITY RECEPTORS IN THE HOMEOSTASIS AND FUNCTION OF A NEWLY DISCOVERED SUBSET OF HUMAN GAMMA DELTA T CELLS

Natural Cytotoxicity Receptors (NCRs) were originally identified as specific natural killer cell activating receptors that, upon binding to their endogenous ligands, trigger the killing of tumor cell targets. Here we describe a population of Vδ1 + T cells from human peripheral blood that can differe...
