The mechanisms that govern the development of adaptive-like NK cells are elusive. Shemesh et al. (2022. J. Exp. Med. report that the development of FcRγ−/low adaptive-like NK cells requires reduced mTOR activity and depends on TGF-β or IFN-α. These findings provide exciting new molecular blueprints explaining the development and functions of adaptive-like NK cells.
