This Podcast features a conversation with the senior authors of a Research Article published in the April 5 issue of Science Signaling. Sophie Ugolini and Eric Vivier discuss their team’s finding that signaling through inhibitory NK cell receptors determines the distribution of activating receptors, which, in turn, determines the responsiveness of the cells to activating stimuli. This finding suggests that inhibitory receptors can affect membrane receptor organization and hence the responsiveness of NK cells.
