NKG2 also known as CD159 (Cluster of Differentiation 159) is a receptor for natural killer cells. There are 7 NKG2 types: A, B, C, D, E, F and H. NKG2D is an activating receptor on the NK cell surface. NKG2A dimerizes with CD94 to make an inhibitory receptor (CD94/NKG2).

IPH2201 is a monoclonal antibody targeted at NKG2A.[1]
