CD16 is a 50-65kD cell surface molecule which exists in two forms - a transmembranous form expressed by NK cells and some T cells and a phosphatidylinositol linked form expressed by granulocytes. CD16 is a low affinity receptor for IgG (FcR III), and is an important receptor mediating ADCC by NK cells.
