CD94 is a 30 kDa type II transmembrane protein with an extracellular C-type lectin domain. It is expressed by natural killer (NK) cells and a subset of CD8+ T cells, with cellular activation resulting in increased cell surface expression. Although CD94 can occur as a non-signaling homodimer, functional activity occurs when CD94 exists as a heterodimer with a NKG2 family member. The CD94/NKG2A heterodimer delivers an inhibitory signal to the expressing cell, whereas, the CD94/NKG2C heterodimer associates with the DAP12 adaptor protein and delivers an activating signal. Both heterodimeric complexes recognize HLA-E with an associated peptide derived from the signal peptide of other HLA proteins.
