KLRG1 (killer cell lectin-like receptor G1), also called MAFA (mast cell function associated), is a 30-38 kDa type II transmembrane inhibitory glycoprotein of the C-type lectin family, designated CLEC15A. KLRG1 binds E-, N- and R-cadherins and functions as an MHC-independent means of identifying non-self pathogens and epithelial tumor cells with low E-cadherin expression. It is expressed as a monomer or disulfide-linked homodimer on NK and T cell subsets such as tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes.
