Regulation of antiviral CD8+ T cells by inhibitory natural killer cell receptors

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

9 Scopus citations


Recent evidence indicates that CD8+ T cells express natural killer cell receptors that constrain the range and magnitude of their activities. For virus-specific CD8+ T cells, upregulation of these receptors serves to control infection, while concurrently minimizing bystander pathology. Dysregulated expression of these receptors, however, may foster the establishment of persistent virus infection.
