    Immunol Res 23:147-56. 2001
    ..Elucidation of these regulatory mechanisms is expected to reveal new therapeutic targets for B cell pathologies involving defects in BTK, including X-linked agammaglobulinemia (XLA)...

    Department of Microbiology and Immunology, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, Nashville, Tennessee 37232 0146, USA
    J Biol Chem 276:1715-9. 2001
    ..Interference with this NF-kappaB cascade may account for some of the B cell defects reported for plc-gamma2(-/-) mice, which develop an X-linked immunodeficiency-like phenotype...

    J Exp Med 191:1745-54. 2000
    ..Taken together, these findings indicate that BTK couples IKK and NF-kappaB to the BCR. Interference with this coupling mechanism may contribute to the B cell deficiencies observed in XLA and xid...

    Biochem Soc Trans 32:113-5. 2004
    ..Therefore the functional integrity of the BTK/PLC-gamma2/diacylglycerol signalling axis is crucial for BCR-directed activation of both transcription factors NFAT and NF-kappaB...
