Human Gene MICB (uc011gxf.2) Description and Page Index
  Description: Homo sapiens MHC class I polypeptide-related sequence B (MICB), mRNA.
RefSeq Summary (NM_005931): This gene encodes a heavily glycosylated protein which is a ligand for the NKG2D type II receptor. Binding of the ligand activates the cytolytic response of natural killer (NK) cells, CD8 alphabeta T cells, and gammadelta T cells which express the receptor. This protein is stress-induced and is similar to MHC class I molecules; however, it does not associate with beta-2-microglobulin or bind peptides. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2014].
