A mutation in OTOF, encoding otoferlin, a FER-1-like protein, causes DFNB9, a nonsyndromic form of deafness
Using a candidate gene approach, we identified a novel human gene, OTOF, underlying an autosomal recessive, nonsyndromic prelingual deafness, DFNB9. The same nonsense mutation was detected in fourExpand

Defects in whirlin, a PDZ domain molecule involved in stereocilia elongation, cause deafness in the whirler mouse and families with DFNB31
The whirler mouse mutant (wi) does not respond to sound stimuli, and detailed ultrastructural analysis of sensory hair cells in the organ of Corti of the inner ear indicates that the whirler geneExpand

Prelingual deafness: high prevalence of a 30delG mutation in the connexin 26 gene.
Prelingual non-syndromic (isolated) deafness is the most frequent hereditary sensory defect. In >80% of the cases, the mode of transmission is autosomal recessive. To date, 14 loci have beenExpand

Usher syndrome type I G (USH1G) is caused by mutations in the gene encoding SANS, a protein that associates with the USH1C protein, harmonin.
Usher syndrome type I (USH1) is the most frequent cause of hereditary deaf-blindness in humans. Seven genetic loci (USH1A-G) have been implicated in this disease to date, and four of theExpand

Autosomal recessive non-syndromic hearing loss in the Lebanese population: prevalence of the 30delG mutation and report of two novel mutations in the connexin 26 (GJB2) gene
Editor—The most common sensory deficit in humans is hearing loss, affecting 1 in 1000 children, with approximately half of the cases having a genetic cause. The majority of these genetic causes areExpand

A novel locus for Usher syndrome type I, USH1G, maps to chromosome 17q24–25
Abstract. Usher syndrome (USH) is an autosomal recessive disorder associated with sensorineural hearing impairment and progressive visual loss attributable to retinitis pigmentosa. This syndrome isExpand

DFNB31, a recessive form of sensorineural hearing loss, maps to chromosome 9q32-34
We report the identification of a novel locus responsible for an autosomal recessive form of hearing loss (DFNB) segregating in a Palestinian consanguineous family from Jordan. The affectedExpand

A sensorineural progressive autosomal recessive form of isolated deafness, DFNB13, maps to chromosome 7q34-q36
Deafness is the most frequent sensorineural defect in children. The vast majority of the prelingual forms of isolated deafness are highly genetically heterogeneous with an autosomal recessive mode ofExpand

High frequency of the p.R34X mutation in the TMC1 gene associated with nonsyndromic hearing loss is due to founder effects.
Founder mutations, particularly 35delG in the GJB2 gene, have to a large extent contributed to the high frequency of autosomal recessive nonsyndromic hearing loss (ARNSHL). Mutations in transmembraneExpand
