MHC class I polypeptide-related sequence B (MICB) is a protein that is encoded by the MICB gene located within MHC locus.[4] MICB is related to MHC class I and has similar domain structure, which is made up of external α1α2α3 domain, transmembrane segment and C-terminal cytoplasmic tail.[4] MICB is a stress-induced ligand for NKG2D receptor.[5] The heat shock stress pathway is involved in the regulation of MICB expression as transcription of MICB is regulated by promoter heat shock element.[6]
