with respect to the paper:

Adaptive reconfiguration of the human NK-cell compartment in response to cytomegalovirus: A different perspective of the host-pathogen interaction

What is meant by NK-cells compartment?
I searched Google but couldn't find a proper text that would help me understand what it means.. Google search shows papers which has this term, but I need to understand what it means before reading the paper. Please help.

  • $\begingroup$ I agree that you need to know the basics. But I got answers to your term on googling. Here's one: NK Cell Compartments and Their Activation by Dendritic Cells. Read the first two paragraphs. $\endgroup$ – anongoodnurse Mar 9 '15 at 7:35
  • $\begingroup$ In my very brief search, it appears to refer to the expression of specific surface markers. $\endgroup$ – canadianer Mar 9 '15 at 7:37
  • $\begingroup$ @anongoodnurse You can post that as an answer. This is not that obvious to be classified as homework (someone VTCed this as homework). $\endgroup$ – WYSIWYG Mar 9 '15 at 10:00
