This mouse IgG1 antibody was generated against the PH domain (amino acids 1-175) of human BTK.
BTK (Bruton's tyrosine kinase), also known as BPK or ATK, is a member of the TEC family of non-receptor protein tyrosine kinase which includes Bmx, Itk and TEC. BTK plays a crucial role in B cell activation and development. Similar to Etk-TNFR2 interaction, Btk interacts with Fas, a member of the TNFR family involved in apoptosis in a ligand-independent manner. Mutations in the Btk gene have been linked to severe developmental blocks in human B-cell ontogeny leading to X-linked agammaglobulinemia (XLA).

Expression of Btk in normal and patient PBMC. The protein levels of Btk in total PBMC and fractionated cell populations were examined by western blotting. PBMC and purified monocytes (M), T cells (T), and B cells (B) from the same buffy coat were used. The numbers above the lanes indicate the number of cells x 106 used in each assay. Arrow indicates the position of Btk.
