NKG2A is a 244 amino acid (aa), ~38 kDa type II transmembrane glycoprotein with a cytoplasmic ITIM motif and a single extracellular lectin-like domain. Within the extracellular domain (aa 94-244), mouse NKG2A shares 71% and 41% aa sequence identity with rat and human NKG2A, respectively. An isoform lacking aa 98-114 has been described. NKG2A associates with CD94 and is coexpressed on NK cells and some activated T cell populations. The NKG2A/CD94 complex delivers an inhibitory signal upon recognition of its murine ligand, Qa-1b (or HLA-E in humans) on antigen presenting cells.
