Natural killer (NK) cells express two types of receptors involved in target recognition: inhibitory receptors for target cell MHC class I molecules and activation receptors. While there has been significant progress in understanding the inhibitory receptors, less is known about the activation receptors. Detailed analysis of several mouse NK-cell activation receptors provides insight into the physiologic relevance of these receptors in the innate immune response.
