Hereditary nonsyndromic hearing loss is highly heterogeneous and most patients with a presumed genetic etiology lack a specific diagnosis. It has been estimated that several hundred genes may be associated with this sensory deficit in humans. Here, we identified compound heterozygous mutations in the TMC1 gene as the cause of recessively inherited(More)
De novo mutation in ATP6V1B2 impairs lysosome acidification and causes dominant deafness-onychodystrophy syndrome Dominant deafness-onychodystrophy syndrome (DDOD syndrome; MIM 124480) is characterized mainly by congenital sensorineural hearing loss accompanied by dystrophic or absent nails. Prominent differences between DDOD syndrome and DOORS syndrome(More)
Inherited genetic defects play an important role in congenital hearing loss, contributing to about 60% of deafness occurring in infants. Hereditary nonsyndromic hearing loss is highly heterogeneous, and most patients with a presumed genetic etiology lack a specific molecular diagnosis. By whole exome sequencing, we identified responsible gene of family 4794(More)
OBJECTIVE To observe the effect of electroacupuncture (EA) intervention on expression of phosphorylated mitogen activated protein kinase-P 38 (p-P 38 MAPK) protein and Interleukin 1beta (IL-1beta)mRNA in the frontal lobe and hippocampus in Alzheimer's disease (AD) rats so as to explore its mechanisms underlying improvement of AD in clinic. METHODS(More)
Hereditary spastic paraplegia (HSP) is a neurodegenerative disease characterized by progressive weakness and spasticity of the lower limbs, in complicated forms, with additional neurological signs. To identify the genotype and characterize the phenotype in a Chinese HSP family, ten subjects from the family were examined through detailed clinical(More)
