26014037 This finding provides a rationale for the reciprocal expression of KLRG1 and CD103 in different CD8(+) T-cell subsets.
24752778 high levels of TfRs such as those found on activated lymphocytes were found to be associated with decreased KLRG1 inhibitory function, indicating that TfRs may sequester KLRG1 from interacting with cadherins.
24337749 KLRG1 was overexpressed on CD4(+) T cells.
24022692 Data indicate that increments of CD8 + effector memory T cells in human and mouse chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL)(Emu-TCL1 model) were due to an expansion of the inhibitory killer cell lectin-like receptor G1 (KLRG1) expressing cellular subset.
23966413 These results indicate that KLRG1 negatively regulates natural killer cell numbers and functions via the Akt pathway, thus providing a novel marker and therapeutic target for hepatitis C virus infection.
23740233 More T cells were KLRG1+ in the synovial fluid of patients with spondylarthritis/rheumatoid arthritis than crystal arthritis or controls. Those T cells were more functionally active, and migrated towards the synovial fluid of SpA/RA patients.
22684915 The lower inhibitory capacity of mKLRG1 compared with hKLRG1 can thus be rationalized by a decreased proportion of dimeric entities, which can be pinpointed to a single amino acid.
21933704 cytomegalovirus positive had lower proportions of NK-cells expressing inhibitory receptors (KLRG1 and CD158a)
21387286 trastuzumab-mediated antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity was markedly enhanced by KLRG1-negative peripheral blood mononuclear cells
20394788 Results demonstrated a substantial reduction in both CD94- and KLRG1- expressing CD3(-)CD56(+) NK cells with increased age.
