2B4, NTB-A and CRACC are members of the recently defined family of SLAM-related receptors. Here we review the role of these receptors for the regulation of Natural Killer cell function and describe the current knowledge about the signal transduction of these receptors. Finally, we critically analyze some controversial data about the function of 2B4 in mouse and man.
