The NKp80, also known as killer cell lectin-like subfamily F, member 1 (KLRF1) is a type II transmembrane glycoprotein of 80 kDa and 40 kDa under reducing conditions. It is expressed on NK cells and a subset of T lymphocytes whereas it is not expressed on B lymphocytes, monocytes and granulocytes. The NKp80 antigen is a 231 amino acid protein which belongs to the C-lectin family and is encoded by a gene located on chromosome 12. It is characterized, in its 169 amino acid extracellular domain by 4 glycosylation sites and by two tyrosine residues in its 39 amino acid cytoplasmic domain. The transmembrane domain contains 23 amino acids. The NKp80 molecule binds to the genetically linked receptor AICL which is up-regulated by Toll-like receptor stimulation. NKp80-AICL interaction regulates the immune responses at sites of inflammation by stimulating the release of proinflammatory cytokines.
