An electron microscopic study of human natural killer (NK) cells showed abundant cytoplasm and relatively large mitochondria. They also had various kinds of granules in their cytoplasm. The mode of binding to the tumor cell (K 562) was tight, and villi protruded from NK cells to the target cells. Some traget cells were already lysed after incubation for 5 minutes at 4°C.
