Decreased ATM causing defective DNA repair and apoptosis in CVID

J Clin Immunol (2021). https://doi.org/10.1007/s10875-021-01050-2 Bottom line: Decreased pATM promotes DNA repair defects and promotes apoptosis. Complex CVID and Infections CVID have a differential expression of genes TOP3A, XRCC2, and MSH6.
