26647083 Educated natural killer cells expressing KIR2DL1 display functional advantage for anti-HIV-1 antibody-dependent activation.
26542066 KIR2DL1-C2C2 is less frequent in type 1 diabetes in Saudi children
26456260 Influence of Differently Licensed KIR2DL1-Positive Natural Killer Cells in Transplant Recipients with Acute Leukemia
26453750 Coengagement of inhibitory receptors, either KIR2DL1 or CD94-NKG2A, did not inhibit phosphorylation of Stat5 but inhibited selectively phosphorylation of Akt and S6 ribosomal protein.
26416275 Data suggest regulatory interactions between major histocompatibility antigen HLA-C and killer cell Ig-like receptor (KIR) might promote Graft-versus-Leukemia effects following transplantation.
26292085 KIR2DL1*022 and 2DL1*026 evolved in the KhoeSan after their divergence from other modern human populations.
25505289 These results revealed that ITIM phosphorylation is controlled by self-association of KIR and that His-36 serves as a gatekeeper to prevent unregulated signaling through KIR2DL1.
25163702 C2 of KIR2DL1 is a novel risk factor, and homozygosity for C1 is a protective factor for childhood B-ALL
25037176 We investigated the association of HLA alleles and KIR ligands according to oligoclonal band status in multiple sclerosis patients.
24951171 genetic association studies in Chinese Han population: Data suggest that the frequency of KIR2DL1 gene is increased in women with pre-eclampsia when homozygous HLA-C2 allele appears in the fetus.
