Typically the NK cell has the appearance of a large granular lymphocyte, Figure 1, which has an eccentric mature nucleus, abundant cytoplasm and coarse azurophilic granules. These cells are derived from the hematopoietic stem cell, then the T/NK cell progenitor at which stage they diverge and become committed to the NK lineage. They acquire some common T lineage antigens, CD2 and CD7, but are negative … Read more »
