BTK plays a crucial role in B-cell ontogeny. This protein transiently phosphorylates GTF2I on tyrosine residues in response to B-cell receptor cross-linking. Defects in BTK are the cause of X-linked agammaglobulinemia type 1 (XLA). XLA is a humoral immunodeficiency disease which results in developmental defects in the maturation pathway of B-cells. Affected boys have normal levels of pre-B-cells in their bone marrow but virtually no circulating mature B-lymphocytes. This results in a lack of immunoglobulins of all classes and leads to recurrent bacterial infections like otitis, conjunctivitis, dermatitis, sinusitis or fatal sepsis or meningitis within the first years of life.
