Some studies suggest that expression of NK cells triggering receptors, including CD94, KIR (CD158a/h and CD158b/j), NKp46, and NKG2D, does not differ between CB and APB NK cells, while others reported that a higher percentage of CB NK cells express the inhibitory receptor complex of CD94/ NKG2A and CD158b/j (38), (39).
Lo mismo ha ocurrido en LNH en humanos, donde se atribuye que el origen de este tipo de linfomas es a partir de celulas naturales asesinas (NK); para su confirmacion, seria necesario utilizar otros anticuerpos especificos para antigenos de membrana de esas celulas, que en humanos son CD56, CD94 y CD16 (Abbas et al.
