Killer cell immunoglobulin-like two-domain short-tail receptor 4 (KIR2DS4) is the most prevalent lineage III-activating KIR receptor. It interacts weakly but specifically with HLA-Cw3 and HLA-Cw4 and may also bind to an uncharacterised non-MHC molecule. It can associate with DAP12, activating NK cells.
