I've just read that NK cells have perforins and granzymes that create holes and then activate suicide of other cells. How do they 'store' those proteins to keep them from destroying themselves? Whatever mechanism(s) they use, does that mean NK cells are invincible - in other words, they just can't die even if other cells want to kill them?
