Negative regulators of innate anti-tumor immunity. Schematic illustrating receptors and their ligands regulating anti-tumor immunity by NK cells (top) and macrophages (bottom). In NK cells, inhibitory receptors that recognize MHC class 1 molecules are recognized as a potential target to enhance NK cell-mediated cytotoxicity against tumors. Targeting macrophage phagocytosis checkpoints has also emerged as a potential approach in combination with various cancer mAb therapies due to its potential in enhancing the elimination of antibody-coated tumor cells. An immunosuppressive metabolite, adenosine, also potently inhibits innate and adaptive anti-tumor immunity.
