X-linked agammaglobulinemia(XLA) is a heritable humoral immunodeficiency disease characterized by inefficient expansion of pre-B cells into later B cell stages or incomplete differentiation of B cell precursors to pre-B cells. The gene mutated in XLA was identified as a cytoplasmic tyrosine kinase, named Bruton`s tyrosine kinase(BTK). In this report we investigated the characteristics of immune cells, the patterns of intracellular...
