NK cells kill a wide variety of tumor cells, but usually leave normal cells intact. It was earlier reported that low class I HLA expression can be one of the factors that render target cells relatively susceptible to NK lysis. In this contribution, we show that in human melanomas the class I HLA expression is down-modulated by high expression of transfected c-myc oncogenes. The extent of down-modulation depended on the level of c-myc expression in a dose-dependent way. Taken together, thesedoi:10.4049/jimmunol.143.12.4331 fatcat:ip75r5m7ubgl3mvsrt7dsmfwum
