Flow cytometric quantitation of intracellular DOCK8 protein is used to screen for biallelic mutations of DOCK8 in Hyper IgE Syndrome investigations. In addition to lack of DOCK8 expression in a patient, carrier status can also be determined by flow cytometry. DOCK8 protein expression in lymphocyte subsets including T, B and NK is measured.
