Cytochrome b deficicency in the peripheral granulocytes of two male patients with chronic granulomatous disease was demonstrated by an immunocytochemical assay using a monoclonal antibody, 7D5, against human neutrophil cytochrome b. A mosaic of cytochrome b positive and negative neutrophils, indicating a carrier state in an X-linked trait, was found in the mother of patient 1 but not in the mother of patient 2.
