a tyrosine kinase of the Tec family. Plays a crucial role in B-cell ontogeny. Defects cause X-linked agammaglobulinemia, an immunodeficiency characterized by failure to produce mature B lymphocyte cells and associated with a failure of Ig heavy chain rearrangement. Truncated splice forms found in childhood leukemias may underlie radiation resistance of tumors through inhibition of apoptosis. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
