Term Information

Accession
GO:0042267
Name
natural killer cell mediated cytotoxicity
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
NK cell mediated cell death, NK cell mediated cell killing, NK cell mediated cytotoxicity, natural killer cell mediated cell death, natural killer cell mediated cell killing, NK cell mediated cytolysis, killer activity, natural killer cell mediated cytolysis, natural killer-cell mediated cytolysis
Alternate IDs
None
Definition
The directed killing of a target cell by a natural killer cell through the release of granules containing cytotoxic mediators or through the engagement of death receptors. Source: GOC:pr, GOC:add
Comment
Note that either or both mechanisms mentioned in the definition may be used in this process. Note that both granule release and the engagement of death receptors on target cells result in induction of apoptosis in the target cell.
