Gene Family: Inhibitory leukocyte immunoglobulin like receptors (LILRB)

Also known as : "Leukocyte immunoglobulin like receptor B subfamily", "Inhibiting LILRs", "Inhibitory LILRs"

Inhibitory LILRs: Inhibitory LILRs (LILRBs) contain cytoplasmic tails with immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibitory motifs that provide negative signals. [Source: Tedla et al., 2011]
