B-actin Deficiency
β-actin Deficiency coincides with poor granulocyte movement (chemotaxis) and recurring infections. β-actin is a protein that allows cell movement. Some individuals that suffer from this condition, along with other chemotactic disorders, suffer from early tooth loss and severe gum infection (periodontitis).
