Abstract

Recent interest has focused on interactions between natural killer (NK) cells and dendritic cells (DCs). In vitro and in vivo studies have demonstrated various effects of NK-DC interactions, including activation and cytokine production, maturation of DCs and NK-cell lysis of certain autologous DCs. These interactions are important during an immune response in vivo, however, it remains unclear where in the body NK cells and DCs might interact and whether observed in vitro crosstalk between these cell types happens in vivo. We propose evidence for at least two potential locations of in vivo interactions for human NK cells and DCs, including sites of inflammation and lymph nodes.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 6. 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 20 June 2017.
All research outputs
#1,872,224
of 11,383,805 outputs
Outputs from Trends in Immunology
#322
of 1,074 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#62,433
of 246,654 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Trends in Immunology
#21
of 22 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 11,383,805 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 79th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,074 research outputs from this source. They typically receive more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 8.1. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 62% of its peers.
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 246,654 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 74% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 22 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 4th percentile – i.e., 4% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
