In vivo elimination of MHC-I-deficient lymphocytes by activated natural killer cells is independent of granzymes A and B

Regner, Matthias; Pavlinovic, Lisa; Young, Nicolie; Müllbacher, Arno


NK cells kill target cells mainly via exocytosis of granules containing perforin (perf) and granzymes (gzm). In vitro, gzm delivery into the target cell cytosol results in apoptosis, and induction of apoptosis is severely impaired in the absence of gzm A and B. However, their importance for in vivo cytotoxicity by cytotoxic T cells has been questioned. We used an in vivo NK cytotoxicity assay, in which splenocytes from wild-type and β(2)microglobulin-deficient (MHC-I(neg)) mice are co-injected...[Show more]
