CD56bright natural killer (NK) cells: an important NK cell subset

Significance[ edit ] NKT cells seem to be essential for several aspects of immunity because their dysfunction or deficiency has been shown to lead to the development of cd56 nk cells diseases such as diabetes or atherosclerosis and cancers. NKT cells have recently been implicated in the disease progression of human asthma.


It is not clear whether this is a cause or effect of the disease. Absence of microbe exposure in early development led to increased iNKT cells and immune morbidity in a mouse model.

Their main properties are i natural cytotoxicity against tumor cells or infected cells without prior cd56 nk cells, ii antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity ADCC against antibody-coated target cd56 nk cells, and iii cytokine and chemokine production and secretion, which not only are important in innate immunity but also influence the subsequent adaptive immune response 1.


Considered for decades as exclusively innate cd56 nk cells, NK cells have been shown to display memory functions as well 2 — 4. In addition, they can act as suppressive cells under certain conditions 5.

Although this is still debated, the majority of authors consider the latter as the immature precursor cells of the CD56dimCD16bright population.

From the functional point of view, NK cells degranulate their cytotoxic vesicles upon encounter with susceptible target cells, a phenomenon that can be measured by flow cytometry with an antibody directed against the vesicle-associated protein CDa and cd56 nk cells reflects cytotoxic activity If a developing NK cell expresses one or several self-specific inhibitory receptors, it becomes licensed educated and functional In the absence of such a receptor, the NK cell remains unlicensed and hypo-responsive, although it is now recognized that these cells can rapidly become efficient if appropriately stimulated, and that the unlicensed status may actually be advantageous under certain conditions These cells cd56 nk cells functional after interaction with target cells but do not proliferate well any more Although a truly specific maturation marker is still missing, CD DNAM-1 is considered as a molecule characterizing educated, self-specific inhibitory receptor expressing NK cells We also investigated three cases of multiple myeloma MM in this regard.

Human TAP deficiency is an autosomal recessive immune defect characterized by a very low cell surface expression of HLA class I molecules and clinically by chronic bacterial infections of the respiratory tract, bronchiectasis, and granulomatous skin lesions, sometimes accompanied by a midface involvement leading to a total destruction of the nasal cartilage 19 Approximately 30 cases have been described to date, but there are probably many more if one considers the high number of idiopathic bronchiectasis cases 21 and the often reduced access to healthcare in regions where consanguinity is frequent.

In this review, we will focus on the CD56bright NK cell subset. These cells are numerically in the minority in peripheral blood but constitute the majority of NK cells in secondary lymphoid tissues.

Cell staining and flow cytometry. The first set of samples, including samples from 5 subjects from cd56 nk cells treatment group, was stained with a common panel of antibodies P1: The second set of samples was stained cd56 nk cells a common panel of antibodies P2: In addition to the common antibodies, NK cells were stained with antibodies directed against receptors, including:
