Title

NK Cell Subsets in Health and Disease: New Developments

Subject

NK Cell Subsets

Description

Under physiological conditions, the distribution /intensity of the surface markers CD56 and CD16 (FcγRIII) defines two subsets of NK lymphocytes: the CD56bright/CD16neg-dim (generally referred to as CD56bright) population that make up about 10% of blood NK cells in adults and the CD56dim/CD16bright (generally referred to as CD56dim) cells that comprise for about 90% of circulating NK cells. CD56bright NK cells exert only marginal cytotoxic capacity but are higly proficient in production of cytokines such as interferon IFN-γ, TNF-α and GM-CSF. Because of this property, CD56bright NK cells have been generally referred to as regulatory NK cells.
