Btk is a cytoplasmic tyrosine kinase, which is mainly involved in B cell receptor signalling. Gene targeting experiments revealed that Btk is important for B cell development and function. However, Btk is not only expressed in B cells, but also in most other haematopoietic lineages except for T cells and plasma cells. Recently we found that Btk is involved in Toll-like receptor signalling. Toll-like receptors play an important role in innate immunity. They are highly expressed on mast cells,doi:10.14670/hh-20.945 pmid:15944945 fatcat:ed4lvrt7vbgqpicy2uaqhueyq4
