We'd like to understand how you use our websites in order to improve them. Register your interest. Although mutations in various regions were reported mainly in the Caucasian population, correlation between the locations of mutation and the clinical phenotypes remains unclear. We report 12 abnormalities of the Btk gene found in 12 unrelated families out of 14 XLA families in Japan and their clinical features. Gene rearrangement in the kinase domain was identified in two patients by Southern blotting.

Seven point mutations, two small deletions, and one small insertion were detected by SSCP and sequencing. The SSCP analysis also provided information about the carriers in these families. We found some clinical heterogeneity in the affected family members with the same gene mutation.

Moreover, there is considerable inconsistency between the locations of gene aberrations and the immunological phenotypes. Some patients with a nonsense mutation, which may result in the lack of kinase domain, have detectable B cells and immunoglobulins. These identified alterations will provide valuable clues to the Btk protein function and the pathogenesis of XLA. This is a preview of subscription content, log in to check access.

X-linked agammaglobulinemia XLA is a rare genetic disorder discovered in that affects the body's ability to fight infection. As the form of agammaglobulinemia that is X-linked , it is much more common in males. In people with XLA, the white blood cell formation process does not generate mature B cells , [2] which manifests as a complete or near-complete lack of proteins called gamma globulins , including antibodies , in their bloodstream. B cells are part of the immune system and normally manufacture antibodies also called immunoglobulins , which defend the body from infections by sustaining a humoral immunity response. Patients with untreated XLA are prone to develop serious and even fatal infections. A mutation occurs at the Bruton's tyrosine kinase Btk gene that leads to a severe block in B cell development at the pre-B cell to immature B cell stage and a reduced immunoglobulin production in the serum. Btk is particularly responsible for mediating B cell development and maturation through a signaling effect on the B cell receptor BCR.
