background

As a first line of defense, natural killer (NK) cells play a crucial role in the fight against infections.The presented study is the first of its kind that ascribes CD56dimCD16 NKG2C-expressing NK cells a crucial role in biasing adaptive immune responses upon influenza vaccination and suggests NKG2C as a potential biomarker in predicting pandemic influenza vaccine responsiveness.

molecular weight

The protein has a predicted MW of 15.3 kDa. Due to glycosylation, the protein migrates to 40-55 kDa based on Tris-Bis PAGE result.

Function
FUNCTION: Immune activating receptor involved in self-nonself discrimination. In complex with KLRD1 on cytotoxic lymphocyte subsets, recognizes non-classical major histocompatibility (MHC) class Ib HLA-E loaded with signal sequence-derived peptides from non-classical MHC class Ib HLA-G molecules, likely playing a role in the generation and effector functions of adaptive natural killer (NK) cells and in maternal-fetal tolerance during pregnancy (PubMed:30134159, PubMed:37264229, PubMed:9754572). Regulates the effector functions of terminally differentiated cytotoxic lymphocyte subsets, and in particular may play a role in adaptive NK cell response to viral infection (PubMed:20952657, PubMed:21825173). Upon HLA-E-peptide binding, transmits intracellular signals via the adapter protein TYROBP/DAP12, triggering the phosphorylation of proximal signaling molecules and cell activation (PubMed:15940674, PubMed:9655483). {ECO:0000269|PubMed:15940674, ECO:0000269|PubMed:20952657, ECO:0000269|PubMed:21825173, ECO:0000269|PubMed:30134159, ECO:0000269|PubMed:37264229, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9655483, ECO:0000269|PubMed:9754572}.
Subellular location
SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Cell membrane {ECO:0000269|PubMed:20952657, ECO:0000269|PubMed:21825173}; Single-pass type II membrane protein {ECO:0000255}.
Tissues
TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Expressed in NK cell subsets, in particular in adaptive CD57-positive NK cells (at protein level) (PubMed:20952657, PubMed:21825173). Expressed in terminally differentiated cytotoxic gamma-delta T cells (at protein level) (PubMed:20952657). Expressed in alpha-beta T cells subsets (at protein level) (PubMed:20952657). KLRD1-KLRC1 and KLRD1-KLRC2 are differentially expressed within NK and T cell populations, with only minor subsets expressing both receptor complexes (at protein level) (PubMed:20952657). {ECO:0000269|PubMed:20952657, ECO:0000269|PubMed:21825173}.
Structure
SUBUNIT: Heterodimer with KLRD1; disulfide-linked. KLRD1-KLRC2 receptor complex interacts with TYROBP homodimer; this interaction is necessary for the expression on the cell surface (PubMed:20890284, PubMed:9655483). KLRD1-KLRC2 receptor complex can bind with low affinity to HLA-E loaded with self-peptides derived from the signal sequence of classical MHC class Ia (PubMed:18083576, PubMed:9486650). {ECO:0000269|PubMed:18083576, ECO:0000269|PubMed:20890284}.
