Usher syndrome type IIa (OMIM 276901), an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by moderate to severe sensorineural hearing loss and progressive retinitis pigmentosa, maps to the long arm of human chromosome 1q41 between markers AFM268ZD1 and AFM144XF2. Three biologically important mutations in Usher syndrome type IIa patients were identified in a gene(More)
The gene for Usher syndrome type II (USH2A), an autosomal recessive syndromic deafness, has been mapped to a region of 1q41 flanked proximally by D1S217 and distally by D1S439. Using sequence-tagged sites (STSs) within the region, a total of 21 yeast artificial chromosome (YAC) clones were isolated and ordered into a single contig that spans approximately(More)
Usher syndrome type 1 (USH1) is an autosomal recessive, genetically heterogeneous disorder causing severe congenital deafness, retinitis pigmentosa, and vestibular dysfunction. The USHla locus located on 14q32 has been linked to the genetic markers D14S250 and D14S78. Using D14S250 and D14S78, we have isolated two nonchimeric YACs, 878g10 and 844g2, and a(More)
AIM Formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) clinical tissue samples have the potential to provide valuable gene-expression data for the development of cancer biomarkers. However, FFPE RNA is extensively fragmented, presenting a significant challenge for reliably detecting gene expression using traditional qPCR methods. RESULTS We evaluated three novel(More)
