Abstract

Natural killer (NK) cells are crucial to mounting an effective immune response. They have a significant role in cancer immunosurveillance and function as a bridge between innate and adaptive immunity. However, until recently, surprisingly little was known about the molecular basis of NK cell development as compared to the impressive body of knowledge on B- and T-cell development. Here we outline the key transcription factors known to influence NK cell development and at what stages they function. The recent progress in understanding allows us to speculate on the nature of the network of interactions between transcription factors that ultimately facilitate the production of mature functional NK cells.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 05 March 2015.
All research outputs
#3,232,288
of 4,836,649 outputs
Outputs from Current topics in microbiology and immunology
#233
of 329 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#73,204
of 115,881 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Current topics in microbiology and immunology
#5
of 9 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 4,836,649 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 29th percentile – i.e., 29% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 329 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.2. This one is in the 26th percentile – i.e., 26% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 115,881 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 32nd percentile – i.e., 32% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 9 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than 4 of them.
