Natural killer (NK) cells are best known for their capacity to kill tumors but they are also critical in early innate responses to infection, especially herpesviruses. Recent studies indicate that NK cell receptors involved in tumor target specificity are also involved in responses to viral infections. (C) 2002 Editions scientifiques et medicales Elsevier SAS.
