Summation

Most cells of the immune system express receptors for the Fc region of IgG. This heterogeneous family of molecules plays a critical role in immunity, by linking the humoral to the cellular responses. NK cells and B cells have been shown to express exclusively Fc-gamma RIIIa and RIIb respectively.
