Brief description Genes up-regulated in comparison of primary splenic B cells from Xid mice versus those from BTK [GeneID=695] knockout mice.
Full description or abstract Bruton's tyrosine kinase (Btk) is important for B lymphocyte development. To identify genes that are differentially expressed in primary B cells lacking functional Btk, splenocytes from X-linked immunodeficiency (Xid), Btk knockout (KO) and immunocompetent CBA mice, were used in microarrays containing more than 12,000 genes and expressed sequence tags (ESTs). We found 4515 transcripts expressed in duplicate experiments in all three strains. Out of these, 38 were differentially expressed genes (21 up-regulated >2 fold and 17 down-regulated <-2 fold) between CBA and Btk defective mice. Ten out of these genes were selected and quantitative Real-Time PCR was conducted for validation and further investigation. Real-Time experiments correlated nicely with the microarray data. No definitive phenotypic difference has previously been reported between Xid and Btk KO mice. We found 7 genes, whose expression differed (>2 fold) between the two strains. Moreover, when the 38 genes, which differed between immunocompetent CBA and Btk defective mice were ranked according to fold-increase, the levels in Btk KO mice were significantly more altered. This suggests that the defect in Btk KO mice is more severe and demonstrates that the mutant Btk protein in Xid mice does not generally function as dominant negative form.
