Distinct Mechanisms of Tumor Resistance to NK Killing: Of Mice and Men

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review

Abstract

Tumors cells can release natural killer (NK) cell ligands for activating receptor NKG2D that are thought to inhibit NK cell function. In a recent issue of Science, Deng etal. (2015) show that, unexpectedly, a soluble NKG2D ligand can enhance anti-tumor NK cell activity.
