SLC26A4 gene is frequently involved in nonsyndromic hearing impairment with enlarged vestibular aqueduct in Caucasian populations
Sensorineural hearing loss is the most frequent sensory deficit of childhood and is of genetic origin in up to 75% of cases. It has been shown that mutations of the SLC26A4 (PDS) gene were involvedExpand

NKX2‐1 mutations leading to surfactant protein promoter dysregulation cause interstitial lung disease in “Brain‐Lung‐Thyroid Syndrome”
NKX2‐1 (NK2 homeobox 1) is a critical regulator of transcription for the surfactant protein (SP)‐B and ‐C genes (SFTPB and SFTPC, respectively). We identified and functionally characterized two newExpand
