We have investigated the prevalence of mutations in the connexin 26 (GJB2) gene in Omani population using both PCR-RFLP and direct DNA sequencing methods. Two common GJB2 gene mutations (35delG and 167delT) were screened in 280 healthy controls and 95 deaf patients using two different PCR-RFLP methods. To investigate other GJB2 mutations, we have amplified(More)
There are two highly homologous survival motor neuron (SMN) genes in humans but molecular defects in the SMN1 gene cause spinal muscular atrophy (SMA). More than 90% of SMA patients are shown to have a homozygous deletion of exon 7 in the SMN1 gene. Therefore, a simple test for exon 7 deletion would be very useful in the molecular diagnosis of SMA. However,(More)
