Killer cell immunoglobulin-like receptor 2DL3, also known as CD158 antigen-like family member B2, KIR-23GB, Killer inhibitory receptor cl 2-3, MHC class I NK cell receptor, NKAT2a, NKAT2b, Natural killer-associated transcript 2, p58 natural killer cell receptor clone CL-6, p58.2 MHC class-I-specific NK receptor, CD158b2 and KIR2DL3, is a single-pass type I membrane protein which belongs to theimmunoglobulin superfamily. KIR2DL3 contains 2Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domains. KIR2DL3 interacts with ARRB2. KIR2DL3 is a receptor on natural killer (NK) cells for HLA-C alleles (HLA-Cw1, HLA-Cw3 and HLA-Cw7). KIR2DL3 inhibits the activity of NK cells thus preventing cell lysis.
