Official Full Name
Homo sapiens MHC class I polypeptide-related sequence A DNA.
MICA and MICB (Major Histocompatibility Complex class I Chain-related gene A and gene B) bind to the activating immunoreceptor NKG2D. NKG2D is expressed on NK (Natural Killer) cells, NKT cells, ??T cells and CD8+??T cells. Recognition of MICA and MICB by
