Newer gene family pages are available

This is our older gene family page that is no longer maintained. Please go to our new look gene family index to view a complete list of our new maintained gene families. More information can be found in our gene families help page.

We have created a mapping file (Excel) that will map most of the old families to the new. However because we have changed the way we assign families and how we organise them, this file may not map all the old families.

Killer cell lectin-like receptors

The stem symbol KLR# was approved for this gene family in January 1998. All of these genes are located in the natural killer (NK) receptor gene complex (NKC).
