Role of Bruton's tyrosine kinase in immunodeficiency.

Abstract

The genetic defect associated with human X-linked agammaglobulinemia and murine X-linked immunodeficiency was recently shown to result from lack of function of a new cytoplasmic tyrosine kinase, called Bruton's tyrosine kinase (Btk). The phenotypes associated with these immunodeficiencies indicate that Btk plays a critical role in B-lymphocyte development… (More)
