UniProt Comment
  • Receptor on natural killer (NK) cells for HLA-C alleles. Inhibits the activity of NK cells thus preventing cell lysis.
  • Immunoregulatory interactions between a Lymphoid and a non-Lymphoid cell
Pathway Studio
  • Natural Killer Cell Activation through Integrins and non-ITAM-Containing Receptors

All locus annotations are based on the sentinel SNP (rs618835).
However, the sentinel SNP is not contained in SNiPA's database (1000 Genomes Project, phase 3 version 5, European population). Thus, no information about linked genes or further functional annotation is available.
