The Avidity Game: Selecting Natural-Born Killers

Research output: Contribution to journalShort SurveyOtherpeer-review

Abstract

Natural killer (NK) cells display some features equivalent to those of adaptive immune effectors, but the molecular processes underlying these adaptive-like characteristics are just beginning to be defined. In this issue of Immunity, Adams et al. (2019) and Grassmann et al. (2019) report that avidity selection for Ly49H governs the expansion, differentiation, and function of NK cells after cytomegalovirus infection.
