26829983 these data suggest that LLT1-CD161 interactions play a novel and important role in B cell maturation within the Germinal center in humans.
26147876 In RA joints, LLT1 is expressed by cells of the monocyte/macrophage lineage.
25760607 The hexamer of glycosylated LLT1 consists of three classical dimers. The hexameric packing may indicate a possible mode of interaction of C-type lectin-like proteins in the glycosylated form.
23333304 HIV-1 Vif downregulates the expression of C-type lectin domain family 2, member D (CLEC2D) in Vif-expression T cells
22664939 One polymorphism in LLT1 was found to be associated with our Crohn's Disease population (P<0.034).Our Ulcerative Colitis cohort was not associated with the variation in LLT1 (P=0.33)
21930700 LLT1 and CD161 have roles in modulating immune responses to pathogens; and interferon-gamma contributes to modulate immune responses
21572041 Molecular basis for LLT1 protein recognition by human CD161 protein (NKRP1A/KLRB1).
20843815 Data show that only CLEC2D isoform 1 (LLT1) is expressed on the cell surface.
20415786 LLT1 used Src-PTK, p38 and ERK signalling pathways, but not PKC, PI3K or calcineurin pathways, to increase production of IFN-gamma by human natural killer cells.
