Natural killer (NK) cells represent a ubiquitous subpopulation of large, granular lymphocytes with the ability to lyse certain tumor cells, virus-infected cells, and some normal cells without prior sensitization. Although they are often regarded as immune surveillance cells associated with restricting neoplastic growth, other important NK functions are now being explored, including their potential role in B cell regulation (1) and hematopoietic differentiation (2).
