Killer cell lectin-like receptor subfamily B, member 1

CD161, NK3 receptor, NKR-P1, NKR, NKR-P1A
Natural killer (NK) cells are lymphocytes that mediate cytotoxicity and secrete cytokines after immune stimulation. Several genes of the C-type lectin superfamily, including the rodent NKRP1 family of glycoproteins, are expressed by NK cells and may be involved in the regulation of NK cell function. The KLRB1 protein contains an extracellular domain with several motifs characteristic of C-type lectins, a transmembrane domain, and a cytoplasmic domain. The KLRB1 protein is classified as a type II membrane protein because it has an external C terminus. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Papers on CD161
MAIT cells in autoimmunity, immune mediated diseases and airways disease.
Review
New
Hinks, Melbourne, Australia. In Immunology, Feb 2016
However MAIT cells have a specific sensitivity to suppression by therapeutic corticosteroids that may confound many of these observations, as may the tendency of the surface marker CD161 to activation-induced down-regulation.

Review
New
de Boer et al., Utrecht, Netherlands. In Immunogenetics, Jan 2016

Alizadeh et al., Stanford, United States. In Nat Med, Aug 2015
By using this resource, we identified a forkhead box MI (FOXM1) regulatory network as a major predictor of adverse outcomes, and we found that expression of favorably prognostic genes, including KLRB1 (encoding CD161), largely reflect tumor-associated leukocytes.

Review
Griebel, Chilly-Mazarin, France. In Curr Pharm Des, 2014
However, clinical studies with notably selective tachykinin NK3 receptor antagonists in schizophrenia have been disappointing, and they were unable to confirm the promising therapeutic potential from animal studies, thereby questioning the therapeutic utility of these compounds for this condition.
