Host: Mouse Monoclonal
Mouse Ly49 receptors exhibit allelic specificity for MHC class I Ia molecules and are thought to serve to prevent natural killer (NK) cells from attacking normal cells, while allowing them to attack infected or transformed cells in which class I molecules have been down-regulated. These inhibitory receptors are also expressed on subpopulations of mouse CD8+ T cells.
