- Natural Killer (NK) cells are large granular lymphocytes of the innate immune system and are involved in direct innate immune reactions against viruses, bacteria, and other triggers of pathology. This book focuses on the nature of recognition events by NK cells and address how these events are integrated to trigger these effector functions.
