Natural killer cell receptor 2B4 is also known as NK cell type I receptor protein 2B4 (NKR2B4 or h2B4), SLAM family member 4 (SLAMF4), Signaling lymphocytic activation molecule 4, CD antigen CD244. NKR2B4 / CD244 contain two Ig-like (immunoglobulin-like) domains. CD244 is expressed in spleen, PBL, followed by lung, liver, testis and small intestine. CD244 interacts with CD48. Following phosphorylation, CD244 is able to recruit PTPN11/SHP-2 and SH2D1A/SAP. SLAMF4 modulate other receptor-ligand interactions to enhance leukocyte activation. CD244/2B4 is the only heterophilic receptor of SLAM family.
