Auditory neuropathy is a rare form of deafness characterized by an absent or abnormal auditory brainstem response with preservation of outer hair cell function. We have identified Diaphanous homolog 3 (DIAPH3) as the gene responsible for autosomal dominant nonsyndromic auditory neuropathy (AUNA1), which we previously mapped to chromosome 13q21-q24. Genotyping of additional family members narrowed the interval to an 11-Mb, 3.28-cM gene-poor region containing only four genes, including DIAPH3. DNA...

We report a large Chinese family with X-linked postlingual nonsyndromic hearing impairment in which the critical linkage interval spans a genetic distance of 5.41 cM and a physical distance of 15.1 Mb that overlaps the DFN2 locus. Mutation screening of the PRPS1 gene in this family and in the three previously reported DFN2 families identified four different missense mutations in PRPS1. These mutations result in a loss of phosphoribosyl pyrophosphate (PRPP) synthetase 1 activity, as was shown in ...

We previously mapped a novel autosomal dominant deafness locus, DFNA44, by studying a family with postlingual, progressive, nonsyndromic hearing loss. We report here on the identification of a mutation in CCDC50 as the cause of hearing loss in the family. CCDC50 encodes Ymer, an effector of epidermal growth factor (EGF)–mediated cell signaling that is ubiquitously expressed in different organs and has been suggested to inhibit down-regulation of the EGF receptor. We have examined its expression ...

In a number of recent studies, we summarized the obvious errors and shortcomings that can be spotted in many (if not most) mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) data sets published in medical genetics. We have reanalyzed here the complete mtDNA genome data published in various recent reports of East Asian families with hearing impairment, using a phylogenetic approach, in order to demonstrate the persistence of lab-specific mistakes in mtDNA genome sequencing in cases where those caveats were (deliberately)...

Hearing impairment is a common and highly heterogeneous sensory disorder. Genetic causes are thought to be responsible for more than 60% of the cases in developed countries.1 In the majority of cases, non-syndromic hearing impairment is inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern.2 Thirty eight different loci and 20 genes for autosomal recessive non-syndromic hearing impairment (ARNSHI) have been identified to date.3 In many populations, up to 50% of all cases of ARNSHI are caused by mutations i...

Enlargement of the vestibular aqueduct (EVA) and its contents, the endolymphatic sac and duct, is the most common radiologic malformation of the inner ear associated with sensorineural hearing loss.1 It may occur alone or in combination with an incomplete partition of the apical turn of the cochlea as part of a complex of malformations known as a Mondini deformity.2 Hearing loss in ears with EVA is typically pre- or perilingual in onset, sensorineural or mixed, and fluctuating or progressive. EV...

It is estimated that about 1 in 500 children are born with a significant hearing loss.1 Non-syndromic recessive hearing loss (NSRHL) represents a major aetiologic factor in childhood hearing loss since it accounts for approximately 40% of all cases.2 Many of these genetic forms of hearing loss are indistinguishable with current clinical methods. Even so, more than 12 recessive genes have been identified primarily from large consanguineous pedigrees (see the Hereditary Hearing Loss Homepage http:...

Mutations in GJB2, encoding gap junction beta 2 protein (connexin 26), are responsible for the commonest form of non-syndromic recessive deafness in many populations. It has been reported recently that the most common 35delG mutation in GJB2 is exceptionally low in Japanese and Korean populations, but another deletion, 235delC, is relatively frequent. Since the Chinese constitute approximately one fifth of the global population, the frequency of GJB2 mutations in the population has important imp...

AbstractObjective: To evaluate the frequency of GJB2 mutations and their correlation with phenotype in Sicilian non-syndromic sensorineural hearing loss (NSHL) patients. Design: Sequencing of the coding region, basal promoter, exon 1, and donor splice site of the GJB2 gene; screening for the presence of the two common GJB6 deletions. Study sample: A cohort of 102 Sicilian NSHL patients. Results: Fifteen different mutations in GJB2 and seventeen different genotypes were detected. No GJB6 mutation...

Design: Sequencing of the coding region, basal promoter, exon 1, and donor splice site of the GJB2 gene; screening for the presence of the two common GJB6 deletions. Study sample: A cohort of 264 Portuguese NSSHL patients. Results: At least one out of 21 different GJB2 variants was identified in 80 (30.2%) of the 264 patients analysed. Two...

OBJECTIVE: There are many hearing impaired individuals in Monte Santo, a rural municipality in the state of Bahia, Brazil, including multiple familial cases strongly suggestive of a genetic aetiology. METHODS: The present study investigated 81 subjects with hearing impairment (HI) recruited from 36 families. Mutations often associated with HI, i.e. the DFNB1 mutations c.35delG in GJB2, deletions del(GJB6-D13S1830) and del(GJB6-D13S1854), and A1555G in the mitochondrial gene MTRNR1 were initially...

Hereditary hearing loss is one of the most common neurosensory defects in humans. Approximately 70% of cases are nonsyndromic and could be inherited in autosomal dominant, autosomal recessive, mitochondrial, X-linked, and Y-linked manners (Wang et al., 2004; Alford, 2011). The autosomal dominant type, comprising 15%–20% of nonsyndromic hearing loss, is monogenic and genetically heterogeneous. Since the first dominant deafness locus (DFNA1) was identified in 1992, a total of 64 DFNA loci have bee...

Hearing loss affects hundreds of millions of people worldwide by dampening or cutting off their auditory connection to the world. Current treatments for sensorineural hearing loss (SNHL) with cochlear implants are not perfect, leaving regenerative medicine as the logical avenue to a perfect cure. Multiple routes to regeneration of damaged hair cells have been proposed and are actively pursued. Each route not only requires a keen understanding of the molecular basis of ear development but also fa...

Hearing loss is one of the most common chronic health problems all over the world, affecting people of all age, sex and socioeconomic status. Hearing impairment affects around 17 of 1 000 people younger than 18 years old, the incidence increasing with age: approximately 314 of 1000 persons more than 65 years old have some degree of hearing disability. It can be originated by genetic or environmental causes and, according of the anatomical site of the lesion, they can be conductive, neurosensoria...
