Gene Family: Activating leukocyte immunoglobulin like receptors (LILRA)

Also known as : "leukocyte immunoglobulin like receptor A subfamily", "Activating LILRs"

Activating LILRs: Activating LILRs (LILRAs) have short cytoplasmic domains lacking signaling motifs but transmit activating signals by linking to immunoreceptor tyrosine-based activation motifs of the FcR gamma-chain. [Source: Tedla et al., 2011]
