Hereditary nonsyndromic hearing impairment (HI) is extremely heterogeneous. Mutations of the transmembrane channel-like gene 1 (TMC1) have been shown to cause autosomal dominant and recessive forms of nonsyndromic HI linked to the loci DFNA36 and DFNB7/B11, respectively. TMC1 is 1 member of a family of 8 genes encoding transmembrane proteins. In the mouse,(More)
In this study, we detected new sequence variations in LAMA2 and SGCG genes in 5 ethnic populations, and analysed their effect on enhancer composition and mRNA structure. PCR amplification and DNA sequencing were performed and followed by bioinformatics analyses using ESEfinder as well as MFOLD software. We found 3 novel sequence variations in the LAMA2(More)
Pyridoxine-dependent Epilepsy (PDE) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder causing intractable seizures in neonates and infants. It is characterized by seizures that are resistant to common anticonvulsants, but patients respond well to the administration of pyridoxine. PDE is caused by ALDH7A1 genetic defect. Here, we report the disease-causative variant in(More)
