Activating and Inhibitory Immunoglobulin-like Receptors by M. D. Cooper,Toshiyuki Takai,J.V. Ravetch

By M. D. Cooper,Toshiyuki Takai,J.V. Ravetch

A awesome spectrum of novel immunoreceptors sharing similar immunoglobulin-like domain names and signaling strength has been pointed out lately. those receptors have attracted common curiosity simply because they resemble the TCR, BCR, and FcR complexes of their skill to function activating or inhibitory receptors at the cells that endure them. furthermore, they're good situated to impact either innate and adaptive immunity. the whole variety of ligands for those new receptor households remains to be no longer recognized, and knowing in their physiological roles is much from entire. This quantity is the 1st try to summarize and spotlight all recognized points of immunoglobulin-like receptors, supplying a topical assessment of the jobs and attribute positive factors of the immunoglobulin-like receptors and similar molecules within the immune method. Researchers in immunology, molecular biology, cellphone biology, scientific medication, and pharmacology will locate this ebook invaluable.
