A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Although understanding of the function and specificity of many natural killer (NK) cell receptors is increasing, the molecular mechanisms regulating their expression during late development of NK cells remain unclear. Here we use representational difference analysis to identify molecules required for late NK cell differentiation. Axl protein tyrosine kinase, together with the structurally related receptors Tyro3 and Mer, were essential for NK cell functional maturation and normal expression of inhibitory and activating NK cell receptors. Also, all three receptors were expressed in maturing NK cells, the ligands of these receptors were produced by bone marrow stromal cells, and recombinant versions of these ligands drove NK cell differentiation in vitro. These results collectively suggest that Axl, Tyro3 and Mer transmit signals that are essential for the generation of a functional NK cell repertoire.
