Killer-immunoglobulin-like receptors (KIR) are polymorphous activating and inhibitory receptors expressed on the surface of NK cells and some T cells. KIR genes are highly homologous. KIR proteins expressing the long (L) cytoplasmic domain are inhibitory, while KIRs with short (S) cytoplasmic domains are activating. Thus, KIR2DS5 is a 65 kDa type I transmembrane activating receptor for NK cells, and is thought to play a role in NK cell function in response to a number of conditions. While many KIR proteins bind HLA-class I molecules, the ligand(s) for KIR2DS5 remain unclear.
