Summaries for KLRD1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for KLRD1 Gene

  • Natural killer (NK) cells are a distinct lineage of lymphocytes that mediate cytotoxic activity and secrete cytokines upon immune stimulation. Several genes of the C-type lectin superfamily, including members of the NKG2 family, are expressed by NK cells and may be involved in the regulation of NK cell function. KLRD1 (CD94) is an antigen preferentially expressed on NK cells and is classified as a type II membrane protein because it has an external C terminus. Several transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, May 2017]

GeneCards Summary for KLRD1 Gene

KLRD1 (Killer Cell Lectin Like Receptor D1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with KLRD1 include Psoriasis and Bare Lymphocyte Syndrome, Type I. Among its related pathways are Innate Immune System and Allograft rejection.
