Hiby, S. E., Ashrafian-Bonab, M., Farrell, L., Single, R. M., Balloux, F., Carrington, M., & Moffett, A. (2010). Distribution of killer cell immunoglobulin-like receptors (KIR) and their HLA-C ligands in two Iranian populations. Immunogenetics, 62(2), 65-73. https://doi.org/10.1007/s00251-009-0408-5

Killer cell immunoglobulin-like receptors (KIR) gene frequencies vary between populations and contribute to functional variation in immune responses to viruses, autoimmunity and reproductive success. This study describes the frequency distribution of... Read More about Distribution of killer cell immunoglobulin-like receptors (KIR) and their HLA-C ligands in two Iranian populations.
