mRNA Expression by UniProt/SwissProt for KLRF1 Gene

Tissue specificity: Strongly expressed in peripheral blood leukocytes and spleen, with weaker expression in lymph node and adult liver, and no expression detected in bone marrow, thymus, and fetal liver. Not expressed in brain, heart, placenta, lung, kidney, skeletal muscle, and pancreas. Within peripheral blood leukocyte and immunocyte cell lines, expression was predominant in NK cells but was also detected in monocytes.
