  • RelevanceNatural killer cells (NK) are a type of lymphocyte and a component of innate immune defense. They share a common progenitor with T cells and have been described as large, granular, bone-marrow derived lymphocytes. These cells do not destroy the attacking microorganisms directly; they attack infected cells and cells that appear that they might be cancer. NK cells are not phagocytic; they weaken the target cell's plasma membrane, causing water and ions to diffuse into the cell and expanding it. Under this large pressure, the target cell lyses. NK cells are characterised immunohistochemically by the presence of CD56 and the absence of CD3 on the cell membrane. NK cells are activated in response to interferons or macrophage-derived cytokines. They serve to contain virus infections while the adaptive immune response is generating antigen specific cytotoxic T cells that can clear the infection. Patients deficient in NK cells prove to be highly susceptible to early phases of herpes virus infection.
