I can't believe that your Medline search didn't turn up any of the
articles in volume 155 of _Immunological_Reviews_ [Feb. 1997] -- the entire
issue is devoted to NK cells and their function. Do you know how to do an
advanced search on PubMed? By restricting the search fields, you can find
things more quickly. Search fields that would probably be of help to you
include "Major Subject Heading" and "Publication Type".
