BTKFP - Overview: Bruton Tyrosine Kinase (BTK) Genotype and Protein Analysis, Full Gene Sequence and Flow Cytometry

Test Catalog

Test Name

Test ID: BTKFP    
Bruton Tyrosine Kinase (BTK) Genotype and Protein Analysis, Full Gene Sequence and Flow Cytometry

Useful For Suggests clinical disorders or settings where the test may be helpful

Preferred test for confirming a diagnosis of X-linked agammaglobulinemia (XLA) in males with a history of recurrent sinopulmonary infections, profound hypogammaglobulinemia, and <1% peripheral B cells


In females, this is the most useful test for identifying carriers of XLA.


By including protein and gene analysis, this test provides a comprehensive assessment and enables appropriate genotype-phenotype correlations.

Profile Information A profile is a group of laboratory tests that are ordered and performed together under a single Mayo Test ID. Profile information lists the test performed, inclusive of the test fee, when a profile is ordered and includes reporting names and individual availability.
