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 striking spectrum of novel immunoreceptors sharing similar immunoglobulin-like domain names and signaling power has been pointed out lately. those receptors have attracted frequent 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 total variety of ligands for those new receptor households continues to be no longer identified, and realizing in their physiological roles is way from entire. This quantity is the 1st try to summarize and spotlight all recognized points of immunoglobulin-like receptors, delivering a topical review of the jobs and attribute gains of the immunoglobulin-like receptors and similar molecules within the immune procedure. Researchers in immunology, molecular biology, cellphone biology, medical medication, and pharmacology will locate this e-book invaluable.
