Sažetak
NKG2D is a potent activating receptor on NK cells which acts as a molecular sensor for stress exposed cells expressing NKG2D ligands such as infected or tumor transformed cells. Although NKG2D is expressed on NK cell precursors, its role in NK cell development is still not known. We have generated NKG2D-deficient mice by targeting the Klrk-1 locus. Here we provide evidence for dual role of NKG2D in the physiology of NK cells: one, rather regulatory, implicated in their development, homeostasis and survival, and, other, important for exerting their effector functions. We observed the following consequences of NKG2D deficiency on the NK cell development and homeostasis: a) faster division of NK cells ; b) perturbation in size of NK cell subpopulations and, c) their augmented sensitivity to apoptosis. As expected, NKG2D-/- NK cells were considerably less responsive to tumor cell targets expressing NKG2D ligands, thus confirming the important role of NKG2D for exertion of their effector functions NKG2D-/- mice however showed an enhanced NK cell-mediated resistance to MCMV infection as a consequence of NK cell dysregulation. Altogether, these findings provide evidence for yet unknown regulatory function of NKG2D in NK cell physiology.
