Immunodeficiency associated with mutations in the DNA cross-link repair 1C gene (DCLRE1C) can have variable clinical presentations including severe combined immunodeficiency (SCID), Omenn syndrome, atypical SCID or common variable immunodeficiency (CVID) (1-3). DCLRE1C encodes the protein Artemis, a nuclease with intrinsic 5'-3' exonuclease activity on single-stranded DNA that is involved in non-homologous end joining (NHEJ). Artemis is essential for V(D)J recombination of the immunoglobulin and T-cell receptor genes that occur during B- and T-cell development.
